CNN host and best-selling author Fareed Zakaria will be the featured speaker for China Town Hall 2021, a national conversation on how the U.S.-China relationship affects our cities, towns, and communities. From supply chains to national security, new technologies to climate change, the future of both countries will be determined by their relations with one another and the global community.
Following the live-stream with Zakaria will be an on-site dinner and discussion with Robert Griffiths, BYU Political Science adjunct professor and current BYU International Society president. Griffiths was a member of the U.S. Foreign Service with postings overseas in Bogotá, Colombia; Thailand; Kaohsiung and Taipei with the American Institute in Taiwan; and Shanghai and Beijing on the Chinese mainland and in the Bureau of Economic Affairs and as deputy director for Mainland Southeast Asia in the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs.
