China's Leadership Changes: What Will That Mean for the U.S? 

China’s present crop of leaders differs from its predecessors too in its lack of international experience. This could represent a real problem, for the rising importance and strength of China in all domains mean that the country’s national leadership now also has global significance. The president who leads China from 2012 will be a major international political player, more than Hu Jintao has been. In this respect, the successor generation looks deficient. - China’s next elite: 2012 and beyond  Kerry Brown and Loh Su-hsing , 16 August 2010 Open

The 2012 presidential election in the U.S. will be paired with another arguably equally significant election in China. As noted by many experts, the change in power will be defined by a generation wholly raised in a Communist setting, defined by the Cultural Revolution. China's rising affluence and role on the world stage, and the government's role within an increasingly demanding populace may give way to a bold new China.

Come hear from experts from business, government and universities and how each sees the future of China. Hear how business and economy will change, and what we in the U.S. can do to be best positioned.
