CHINA Town Hall is a national day of programming on China involving 50 cities throughout the United States.

The program will open with a webcast from Beijing featuring Gary Locke, U.S. ambassador to China, discussing U.S.-China relations. National Committee president Steve Orlins will moderate this 45-minute portion of the program, comprised of a 15-minute talk followed by half an hour during which Ambassador Locke will respond to questions emailed in from audience members throughout the country.

Prior to the 8pm webcast, China specialist Kevin G. Nealer will introduce the program and be available to answer questions from the audience. A Principal in The Scowcroft Group, Nealer has lead responsibility for the firm’s support for the investment community, providing analysis to leading currency and equity/debt traders.

Following his confirmation by the United States Senate, Mr. Nealer was sworn in as a member of the Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the development finance agency of the US government, where he serves on the Audit and Governance Committees.
