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.
We go beyond the headlines to examine Chinese sectoral trends and industrial policy, the behavior of its companies and financial institutions, and the political economy of public health and climate governance. 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.
China experts in the policy and academic communities will discuss the state of the Chinese economy, pathways to manage scholarly exchanges, and the future of Chinese foreign policy.
