The Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics provides unmatched thought leadership for the Washington policy community by examining China’s economy and its commercial relationship with the United States and the rest of the world.

With our rigorous empirical and data-driven research, we put forward proposals for how the United States and others can adopt smart policies in an era defined by both deep interdependence and strategic competition.
Our analysis is shared with the policy community, business stakeholders, and the public through reports and commentaries, interactive digital content, events, and direct engagement with decision-makers. We aim to generate new ideas and conversations among officials, industry leaders, and scholars.
