Panel discussion with fellows from the East-West Center; Moderated by Ambassador Raymond Burghardt

Wednesday, September 17, 2008 6:30 AM - 8:00 AM

With an unprecedented focus on China this year, this Asian powerhouse continues to change the face of the global economy. The 2008 China Series will present a comprehensive look at “Doing Business in China,” with a panel moderated by former Ambassador of the U.S. to Vietnam Raymond Burghardt. Fellows from the East-West Center will help define ways to take advantage of business opportunities in China and how to overcome certain political, cultural and legal obstacles.

Ambassador Raymond Burghardt served as Ambassador of the U.S. to Vietnam from 2001 to 2004 and joined the East-West Center in 2005 as its director of East-West Seminars. In 2006, he was appointed to the Board of Trustees of the American Institute of Taiwan. Ambassador Burghardt will present “The U.S. and China: Cooperation and Competition with the Emerging Power.”

Panelists include:

  • Kang Wu, head of the China Energy projects, who will speak on “Energy Issues in China: Regional and Global Implications”
  • Allison Conner, an expert on legal risks of doing business in China, who will discuss “China's Legal Environment”
