On April 23, 2010 members of the U.S.-China Peoples Friendship Association visited the State Department in conjunction with their 19th biannual Washington Seminar. While at the State Department, Association members listened to a panel session on a range of issues covering the U.S.-China relationship. Julie Hutto, Economic Officer, Office of Chinese and Mongolian Affairs delivered remarks describing the broad overview of U.S.-China relations. Thomas Hamm, Public Diplomacy Coordinator, Office of Chinese and Mongolian Affairs discussed people-to-people exchanges between the United States and China. Peter Secor Chief, Energy and Natural Resources Division in the Energy Office, focused on economic issues impacting the U.S.-China relationship, particularly issues related to energy. And the final panel member, David Meale, Foreign Affairs Officer, Office of Monetary Affairs, highlighted finance issues impacting the U.S.-China Relationship. As one of the first U.S. organizations to participate in exchange programs with China when such programs began in the 1970s, group members were well informed and very interested in all aspects of U.S.-Chinese relations. The audio of the briefing is available here.
