The following event, originally scheduled for Wednesday, October 4th, 2017, has been postponed.
On October 4th, 2017, Hudson Institute will host Guo Wengui (also known as Miles Kwok) for his first public appearance in the United States.
Mr. Guo will discuss high-level corruption in Chinese politics and its implications for the upcoming Party Congress, as well as the threat China’s kleptocracy poses to the United States and its allies.
The New York Times described corruption allegations made by Mr. Guo against senior Party officials as “the biggest political story in China this year.” In a recent Washington Times article, Mr. Guo described his revelations as an effort to “expose the leviathan Chinese Mafia state, the most corrupt, tyrannical, and brutal state on earth, bar North Korea, a state some of whose leaders systematically have stolen trillions of dollars of the Chinese people’s wealth.”
The event will be on-the-record and Mr. Guo will answer questions submitted in advance by the audience. The discussion will be moderated by Bill Gertz, senior editor at The Washington Free Beacon, national security columnist at The Washington Times, and author of The China Threat: How the People’s Republic Targets America.
Attendance is by invitation only and attendees must present a valid ID in order to access the event. No exceptions will be made.
The event will be live-streamed and a video of the discussion will be available to view online after the event has concluded.
