China's rapid development has a direct impact on the lives of nearly everyone in the United States. The China Town Hall is a national conversation about the US-China relationship that puts the public in dialogue with leading experts. The Town Hall consists of two parts: a live webcast (3-4pm) and an on-site panel discussion with local scholars (4-5pm).

The webcast will be moderated by George Stephanopoulos (ABC News) in conversation with Stephen Orlins (National Committee on US-China Relations), Melanie Hart (Center for American Progress), Yasheng Huang (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and Ely Ratner (Center for a New American Security).

The webcast will be immediately followed by an on-site panel discussion featuring Ji Li (UC Irvine School of Law), Teresa Wright (California State University Long Beach), and John Mok (UC Irvine), moderated by Emily Baum (UC Irvine).
