screen-shot-2016-09-29-at-1-33-44-pmThe Winona State University Office of International Programs will host the 10th annual China Town Hall at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, in East Hall, Kryzsko Commons.

Via live webcast, former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger will answer questions from the nationwide audience, moderated by National Committee President Stephen Orlins. Each of the program’s 70 venues will also host a leading expert on U.S.-China relations, who will discuss topics of concern to the local audience.

China’s rapid emergence as a global player and potential partner on many U.S. policy priorities has ensured the Sino-American relationship will have a direct impact on the lives of nearly everyone in both countries. Kissinger will draw on his experience as national security advisor, secretary of state and his years teaching at Harvard University to put the current state of U.S.-China relations in perspective and chart potential policy courses for the future.

Kissinger, author of “On China,” is America’s leading political thinker and foreign policy expert. He served as secretary of state from 1973-1977, national security advisor from 1969-1975 and was instrumental in America’s re-engagement with China in the 1970s. Kissinger is chairman of Kissinger Associates and a director of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, the leading nonprofit nonpartisan organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States among citizens of both countries.
