Monday: Political symposium on US-China relations

Officials from the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., and other leading experts will gather Monday, April 4, at the University of Central Florida to discuss how the two countries can work together to overcome those challenges.

“U.S. and China: What Does the Future Hold?” is the spring Lou Frey Institute of Politics and Government symposium. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be from 8:40 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. in the Pegasus Ballroom of the Student Union.

This symposium topic stems from a trip that former U .S. Rep. Lou Frey and four other former members of Congress took last year to China. The group visited three universities, met with leaders in the ministries of Commerce and Foreign Affairs and toured several high-tech companies, among other places.

“How the U.S. and China work together, or don’t, will be one of the major factors in world stability over the next decade,” Frey said. “The U.S. has only 20,000 students studying in China, and very few schools in the U.S. teach the Chinese language, culture and history. Hopefully, symposiums such as ours will help interest and educate our future leaders about China.”
