The 5th Annual "G2 at GW" conference
October 12, 2012.

Made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor

Co-sponsored by the Rising Powers Initiative at the Sigur Center for Asian Studies and the
GW-Center for International Business Education and Research

The US - China relationship is now second to none in importance for international economic relations and policy and accordingly is a major focus of IIEP. The centerpiece of this initiative is our annual Conference on China's Economic Development and U.S.-China Economic Relations (or the "G2 at GW"), which has become one of the premier events of its type. For the last three conferences (2009, 2010, 2011) we created a follow-up online "virtual conference volume".
