Penn State will livestream nationwide event on the U.S.-China relations, April 9

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State will join more than 80 venues across the country to host a livestream of the CHINA Town Hall 2024, a national conversation on how the U.S.-China relationship affects our cities, towns and communities, with U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Kurt Campbell as the featured speaker. From supply chains to national security, new technologies to climate change, the future of both countries will be determined by their relations with one another and the global community. The Penn State School of International Affairs (SIA) is serving as the local partner and will host the town hall at 7 p.m. on April 9 in 116 Lewis Katz Building.

Registration is required. Light refreshments will be provided.

Campbell’s conversation with National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUSCR) President Stephen Orlins will be livestreamed to the Katz building from 7 to 8 p.m., followed by an in-person discussion from 8 to 8:45 p.m. about U.S.-China relations and the issues that are having an impact on our local community, institutions and people.

The in-person discussion will be led and moderated by Terrence Guay, clinical professor of international business, associate dean of the Strickler Office of International Programs and director of the Center for Global Business Studies in the Smeal College of Business.

Audience members are encouraged to ask questions and share their views and reactions to Campbell’s comments.

“We are very interested in hearing questions and perspectives on U.S.-China relations from across the Penn State campus and from the broader community,” said Mitchell Smith, director of SIA and professor of international affairs.

Established in 1966, NCUSCR is a U.S. non-profit, non-partisan public affairs organization devoted to building constructive relations between the United States and China.
