The Yale U.S.-China Forum is a student-led conference at Yale University that seeks to initiate discussions on forward-looking issues in China. (Scroll down for detailed agenda)

China, the world’s second largest economy, drives growth far beyond its borders. Meanwhile, the country is undergoing tremendous structural reform as it attempts to decrease its reliance on foreign direct investment and reorient the economy towards domestic consumption. This goal has enabled China to become a pioneer in many industries, including e-commerce, fin-tech, and robotics, and will ensure it remains a major driver of the global economy for years to come.

This forum will explore China’s recent emphasis on global connectivity and “shared growth through collaboration” by probing key issues related to this year’s theme, The China Accelerator for World Development. The discussions will help participants understand the new era of China’s structural reform and explore cooperative opportunities between China and the United States. This is an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the dialog between China and the United States and help foster coordinated development in both countries and beyond.
