PhD Student Ziyi Zhang Participates in Two Summer Programs

From May 30 to June 3, 2017, PhD student, Ziyi Zhang, will attend the "U.S. Foreign Policy Colloquium" program at Washington D.C. The program is organized by the National Committee on the U.S.-China Relations. This program is "an exclusive four-day program designed to provide 75 of the best and brightest Chinese graduate students studying at colleges and universities from across the United States a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the complex forces that shape American foreign policy and inform the U.S.-China relationship." The program includes visiting the U.S. National Security Council, the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of Treasury and the Embassy of the People's Republic of China, amongst others.
 
From July 8 to July 29, 2017, Ziyi will attend the "Asia Institute for Political Economy" (AIPE) program at the University of Hong Kong at Hong Kong, China. This program is organized by the Fund for American Studies, a Washington D.C. based educational nonprofit organization. AIPE is a unique program that brings together approximately 65 students from across Asia and the United States together to explore fundamental issues related to political economy and government.  The combination of educational, cultural, and social exchange will allow participants to explore challenging ideas, form life-long friendships, and will greatly benefit their educational and professional development.
