Managing U.S.-China Economic Relations

Managing U.S.-China Economic Relations

Thursday,  30 September 2010

Timothy Stratford, partner at Covington & Burling LLP and former Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for China, gave a dynamic presentation at Columbia Law School to an overflow room of students and professionals discussing the upsides and concerns of current U.S.-China economic relations.  Selecting newspaper headlines from recent months as well as anecdotes from his own experience, he demonstrated the complex dynamics and ever-changing nature of these relations, exploring the underlying causes of friction in macroeconomic policy, microeconomic policy, institutional weakness, and political systems.  He also highlighted tools available to both the public and private sectors to improve economic relations with China and its industries.  He then answered student questions, and remained for a more in-depth discussion with members of the course, “Law and Legal Institutions in China.”

This lecture was co-sponsored by the Columbia Law School Center for Chinese Legal Studies and SIPA’s Program in International Finance and Economic Policy.
