Ellsworth Conference 2016


A main goal of the center is to connect local and national communities in China and the U.S. by providing a regular forum for dialogue among concerned citizens, opinion leaders, academic, business, media and foreign policy experts. This is being accomplished through conferences, workshops, industry roundtables, public lectures and cultural events that emphasize both scholarly research and interactive engagement.
