Congress and U.S. Policy Toward China

A Discussion with Representatives Mark Kirk and Rick Larsen


9:00 - 10:00 AM EDT

*This event was re-scheduled from July 18*

China’s rapid economic growth and increasingly important role in world affairs poses many difficult questions for U.S. policymakers. How does Chinese economic growth affect U.S. competitiveness in the world? What kinds of policies should Congress sponsor to ensure a fair and productive trade relationship with China? How can the United States best encourage a beneficial and secure relationship with China economically, politically, and militarily? The Center for American Progress will host a conversation with U.S. Reps. Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Rick Larsen (D-WA), co-chairs of the U.S.-China Working Group, to examine these issues and discuss congressional opinions and attitudes toward China. The discussion will be moderated by Carol Browner, Principal of The Albright Group LLC and former administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The bipartisan U.S.-China Working Group educates members of Congress on U.S.-China issues through meetings and briefings with academic, business, and political leaders from the United States.

Featured Speakers:
Rep. Mark Kirk (R-IL), Co-chair of the U.S.-China Working Group
Rep. Rick Larsen (D-WA), Co-chair of the U.S.-China Working Group
