About the Series

This annual series was created in 2011 in partnership with the U.S.-China Working Group and has expanded to include both the House and Senate. This briefing series brings experts to Capitol Hill to brief congressional staff on a wide range of relevant issues impacting China and the US-China relationship. Congressional staff attending a predesignated number of sessions each year receive a professional development certificate and are eligible for consideration by USAI for congressional staff delegations to China.

2017 marks the 7th annual series.
