Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

While the United States’ new “America First” policies begin to forfeit its seat at the global table, China is focused on bridge-building, infrastructure, trade and connectivity. But is China actually ready to step into global superpower status with its job losses and growing internal instability?  In this Conversation, we’ll break down our preconceived notions of what China’s growth means for the United States and present a framework for how we can interpret that government’s actions.

The post-program networking reception open to all attendees of this program will be hosted by John Robinson, Publisher of Mandarin Leader, the who’s who book of influential Chinese residents of Chicago.
