Five students at NYIT’s School of Management (SoM) have spent three days becoming acquainted with the formulation of U.S. foreign policy at a Washington, D.C. conference aimed at Chinese graduate students. The program, “United States Foreign Policy Colloquium,” is sponsored by the National Committee on United States-China Relations (N.C.U.S.C.R).  Select graduate students from the People’s Republic of China (P.R.C.) were invited to interact firsthand with U.S. political leaders and government officials, as well as to network with other P.R.C. graduate students.

SoM students Liu Hongxia (Executive M.B.A.), Gao Yaguang (M.B.A.), Zhang Chengyao (M.B.A.), Xia Wenqiang (M.B.A.), and Xiong Jiaqun (M.B.A.) attended the colloquium at the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs, 28-30 May. They learned of the opportunity through NYIT’s Center for International Business Studies.

The SoM students met Mr. Stephen A. Orlins and Ms. Jan Berris, president and vice-president, respectively, of the N.C.U.S.C.R.; Mr. Kin Moy, deputy assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, responsible for relations with China, Mongolia, and Taiwan; and leaders and staff members of various influential organizations throughout the capital. The students also visited the Chinese Embassy, where Minister Lu Kang and others inspired and encouraged them.

“One of my favorite parts was the site visit, a briefing at an organization involved in U.S. foreign policy,” said Ms. Liu. She visited the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, where she met with the executive director of the Global Intellectual Property Center, Mr. Jasper MacSlarrow. Her classmate Mr. Xia visited the Nature Conservancy, where he and his group discussed environmental policy with leaders there.

The National Committee on United States-China Relations is a leading non-partisan public affairs organization devoted to building meaningful relationships between the United States and China, including among private citizens. NYIT paid tribute to its president, Mr. Orlins, with an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree in 2012, noting his important role in enhancing the U.S.-China relationship.
