and more.

The U.S.-China relationship is undoubtedly the most important bilateral relationship in the world today. In recent years, the conflicts between China and the United States in various key areas and issues have become increasingly prominent. It is urgent for the two countries to carry out dialogues at a broader, deeper, and more profound level. Among them, youth exchanges between China and the U.S. play an irreplaceable role in promoting mutual trust and appreciation between China and the U.S., enhancing people-to-people ties between the two countries, and even cultivating future talents in the world.

The Harvard Undergraduate Foreign Policy Initiative and Center for American Studies at Fudan University is organizing the first US-China Conference hosted jointly at Harvard and virtually with Fudan University in Shanghai, China The conference will explore cooperation and competition between the U.S. and China on the global stage in four major technological topics: Artificial Intelligence, Space, Biotechnology, and Internet as well as special panels on security and economics. Mixed panels of academic, political, and business leaders will introduce perspectives on both sides, and look toward the future of the essential and dynamic relationship between our two countries.
