The relations between the United States and China have faced a number of tests in recent years, from trade and currency friction, to differences on dealing with North Korea, to competing territorial claims in the South China Sea. All of this continues to take place against a backdrop of a new American president and a weak U.S. economy. How the U.S. and China work through these issue, or fail to do so, will be perhaps the greatest challenge to international relations in the 21st century. Frank Lavin will present an overview of the current state of the bilateral relations and also offer insight as to what lies ahead.
Born and raised in Canton, Ohio, Frank Lavin is the former U.S. Ambassador to Singapore and a leading business expert on Asia. He currently lives in Hong Kong where he covers Asia as Chairman of Public Affairs for Edelman, the world's largest independent public relations firm.
As the U.S. Ambassador to Singapore from 2001-2005, Lavin helped negotiate the U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreement. In addition to his government position as Ambassador, he served as the Under Secretary for International Trade at the U.S. Department of Commerce where he was the lead trade negotiator for China and India.
Lavin speaks Chinese and holds degrees in Foreign Service and Chinese Language, International Relations and International Economics, and Finance from Georgetown University, John Hopkins University, and the University of Pennsylvania.
We hope that you are able to join us for this exciting event!
