Asia Society Luncheon on 'The 2016 Vote: U.S. Presidential Candidates on China'

Join YPFP for our next excursion! On Wednesday, March 9, Asia Society will host a luncheon that looks at China today and how that country is being seen from the U.S. campaign trail.

The U.S.-China relationship is the most complex and consequential bilateral relationship in the world today, and yet in the U.S. presidential campaigns, China is typically only mentioned as a lightning rod for criticism, on issues ranging from human rights to cybersecurity to tensions in the South China Sea. In recent years—and certainly in this election cycle—China bashing has become something of a staple on the U.S. campaign trail. Why is that so? And should it be so? What is the public missing, as the would-be successors to President Obama speak about China, and U.S. policy towards that country?

YPFP has reserved 10 complimentary tickets for members and guests to attend!

To RSVP, sign up here. YPFP will reserve your tickets. Please RSVP by Tuesday, March 8 at 12:00pm.
