Hear about the implications of American disengagement on U.S. interests and advice on doing business in China from David H. Rank, the recent Chargé d’Affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and acting Ambassador to China.  A 27-year veteran of the Foreign Service, David resigned in June 2017 after the Trump administration’s decision to exit the Paris Agreement to fight climate change.  He has worked under five U.S. Ambassadors to China and five Presidents during his six tours in greater China since 1985 – three in Beijing, two at the American Institute in Taiwan and one at the U.S. Consulate General in Shanghai.  He  will share his reflections on the challenges, excitement, crises and achievements during these Ambassadors’ tenures and China’s rapid globalization.

Moderator Teresa Kong is Portfolio Manager at Matthews International Capital Management, where she leads the firm’s fixed income team and strategies for two funds, Asia Strategic Income and Asia Credit Opportunities. She is a frequent finance speaker and commentator, most recently with Bloomberg, the Financial Times, and CNN.  Her China experience includes researching and investing in the credit, currency, and interest rates of Chinese government and corporates.  For the 1990 Institute, she recently moderated the CHINA NOW & the FUTURE event featuring Asian economic development expert Joe Studwell of the Economist and author of Asian Godfathers and How Asia Work.
