NYU’s Center on U.S.-China Relations will host “Chinese Capital Outflows and the Global Economy,” featuring Winston Lord and Stapleton Roy, former U.S. ambassadors to China, as well as business executives and policy analysts, on Friday, December 7, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life, Rosenthal Pavilion (60 Washington Square South [at LaGuardia Place], 10th Floor).
The event, the Center on U.S.-China Relations’ second annual conference on Chinese capital markets, will explore the increasingly important role of Chinese capital outflows and the global economy.
“For many years the Chinese Government limited the investment of overseas capital to low-risk sovereign debt and very high-quality corporate paper,” said David Denoon, an NYU professor of politics and economics and director of the Center on U.S.- China Relations. “Now equities, direct investment, and a broader range of instruments are being allowed. This conference will assess the significance of the new surge of capital coming from China."
Sessions include: “The Macro Situation in China and the Prospect of Growing Capital Exports,” the keynote address by Yale Professor Chen Zhiwu; “What is China’s Long-Term Economic Strategy?”, a panel moderated by Roy, director of the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Kissinger Institute; “Likely Developments in U.S.-China Relations,” an interview by Denoon with Lord; “China’s Foreign Direct Investment in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Middle East,” a panel moderated by Mary Wadsworth Darby, founder and managing director of Peridot Advisors Asia; and “China’s Investments in the United States,” a panel that will include Paul Speltz, CEO of Global Strategic Associates and former U.S. ambassador to the Asian Development Bank.

The NYU Center on U.S.-China Relations focuses on two principal scholarly areas: the economic interaction between China and the U.S. and foreign policy issues where both states are involved. The Center also supports scholarly exchanges between the U.S. and China, fellowships for Chinese and American students to do field research, and presentations and events at NYU where speakers will address current policy questions affecting China and the U.S. The Center, established in 2010, is directed by NYU’s David Denoon, a professor of politics and economics.
