September 8, 2021

Join the U.S.-China Policy Foundation for a special episode of our series China Forum: Conversations with Ambassadors. We are honored to be joined by Ambassador Chas W. Freeman, Jr.

Ambassador Freeman served as principal interpreter for President Nixon’s milestone 1972 trip to China. During this episode of China Forum, Ambassador Freeman will share his memories, experiences, and insights from Nixon’s trip and the periods of U.S.-China rapprochement and normalization.

Nearly 50 years later, the legacy of Nixon’s visit and the subsequent impact it had on the U.S., China, and the world is still relevant today. Understanding our past diplomatic relationship with China and learning lessons from those who helped shape it are both vital for ensuring strong diplomacy and effective China policy in the future.

China Forum: A Conversation with Ambassador Freeman, will be streamed online on Wednesday, September 8 at 4:00 p.m. EDT. Watch below.
