An Address by Governor Jon Huntsman
Monday, April 23, 2012
Hudson Institute hosted a special event in New York City on April 23, 2012, featuring former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman, Jr.
Governor Huntsman offered his reflections on U.S.—China relations. There is no one better placed than Governor Huntsman to comment on this critical aspect of our foreign policy.
2012 is a crucial year for China: at the 18th Congress of the Communist Party in October, General Secretary Hu Jintao will yield power to Xi Xingping and the next generation of leadership. This transition occurs at a crucial moment in Chinese history. Although China has emerged as a manufacturing powerhouse, the world's largest exporter, and a prime holder of foreign currency reserves, there are significant questions about the sustainability of the Chinese model of economic growth. Additionally, China's massive military buildup has been of growing concern to U.S. strategists and Pentagon planners.
This event continued the exciting new Hudson Institute—Hunter College forum series that was inaugurated by Pakistani Ambassador Husain Haqqani last September.
The event took place at Hunter College's Roosevelt House.
