This Year, Bryant University joins more than 80 venues across the country as a local partner to host the 2023 CHINA Town Hall program.  

CHINA Town Hall connects leading China experts with Americans around the country for a national conversation on the implications of China’s rise on U.S.-China relations and its impact on our towns, states, and nation.  The National Committee is proud to partner with a range of institutions and community groups, colleges and universities, trade and business associations, and world affairs councils to bring this important national conversation to local communities around America for the 17th consecutive year.

Established in 1966, the National Committee on United States-China Relations (NCUSC) is the leading American non-profit, non-partisan public affairs organization devoted to building constructive relations between the United States and Greater China.
