The 5th International Conference on Economics, Politics, and Security of China and the USA
On October 24-25, 2017, the UMD School of Public Policy’s Center for Public Policy and Private Enterprise will host the “5th International Conference on Economics, Politics, and Security of China and the USA: Partnering for the 21st Century.” The conference is scheduled to take place at the University of Maryland’s Samuel L. Riggs Alumni Center, College Park, MD. Each day registration will begin at 7:45A and the program will start at 8:30A and scheduled to conclude each day at 5:00P. Please RSVP no later than Friday, October 20th.
As you know there are very few opportunities where you have scholars from China's National University of Defense Technology come to the US and speak on topics that are very sensitive to both countries. In order for the US and China to work together, such conferences are critical for US/China relations.
The conference is a joint collaboration between the University of Maryland, College Park and the National University of Defense Technology (NUDT), Changsha, China. The goal of the collaboration and the conference is to conduct and present research on the US-Sino relationship with the goal of improving the overall bilateral relationship. The conference participants consist of experts from think tanks, non-profits, private industry, and academia to address essential issues for US/China, to include:
- Defense Science and Innovation;
- US-China Bilateral Security Relations;
- Nuclear Energy Proliferation;
- US-China Nuclear Weapons and Security Issues;
- Global Cyber Security in the 21st Century;
- Global Sustainability;
- Security in the Pacific;
- Geo-Strategic Competition;
- Civil-Military Integration, and more.
We’re also delighted to have Melissa Hathaway, President of Hathaway Global, LLC, and Sr. Advisor at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center, give the luncheon keynote on “Responsible Disclosure – Government and Corporate Roles.” Hathaway, is the former Sr. Cyber Security Advisor to US Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, and former Acting Sr. Director for Cyberspace at the National Security Council.
