The 41st Taiwan-U.S. Conference on Contemporary China

The 41st Taiwan-U.S. Conference on Contemporary China

Monday, December 3, 2012

9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

With the U.S. presidential election and the 18th Party Congress in China now complete, American and Chinese leaders can turn their attention to larger issues. The Asia-Pacific region is influenced by a number of factors, including the U.S. “rebalancing” strategy, controversy in the South and East China Seas, and a global economy that remains weak. This context, coupled with new leadership, has created an opportune time to examine opportunities and challenges facing regional stakeholders.

The Carnegie Endowment, in conjunction with National Chengchi University, will host a day-long conference featuring panels of leading Taiwanese and American thinkers to examine contemporary China from a policy perspective.
