CHINA: ITS HISTORY, CULTURE & PLACE
IN THE WORLD TODAY
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS THE MOST POWERFUL
NATION IN THE WORLD.
As United States citizens we can travel almost anywhere we want, buy whatever we want, say whatever we
want, go to church wherever we want, marry whoever we want, and the list goes on and on. So why should we
care about China?
This first Global Issues Symposium on China seeks to answer that question. The goal is to establish the global
context of China – where is China coming from and what is holding China back – and to examine current
issues: military, political, technology, Belt and Road trade expansion and more.
MEET THE MODERATOR
Kaiser Kuo worked for many years in China as a tech journalist, and served
as Director of International Communications for the leading Chinese search
engine, Baidu. Kaiser will moderate discussions as needed, making sure
that the speakers answer the question, “Why should we care?” He will
also weave China’s technological advances into the conversations.
