To Our Honored Guests, Welcome to the 9th Annual China-U.S. Symposium. This two-day academic conference is held every spring at Tufts’ Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Our goal is to foster positive relations between China and the United States, cultivating cooperation and understanding between students and experts from different backgrounds and cultures. We believe in building on the unique crossroads of ideas, experiences and people that characterize Tufts University to promote an atmosphere of deep analysis and critical awareness. Our theme this year is “Moving Forward,” and the primary aim of this framework is to tackle issues that Sino-US relations experts will be debating on for years to come, namely cybersecurity, Hong Kong and the Umbrella Revolution, International Business and Investment, as well as the growing pollution problem. This year, the Symposium includes four panels, four breakout sessions, and two keynote addresses. Our speakers have traveled from across the country and across the world, and include policy-makers, practitioners, and academics who specialize in a variety of areas that are critical to China-U.S. relations. Preparing for this Symposium has been an eight-month long effort involving dozens of students, professors, and members of the Tufts administration. Our success is due to the pure dedication of each of these individuals, and we sincerely thank everyone who has played a role. Enclosed in this booklet you will find descriptions of each of our events, biographies of our speakers, and more information about the Symposium and our sponsorship.   Sincerely, Tufts SURGE
