The 2019-2020 U.S.-China Student Fellows met for the first time in Washington, DC, from September 28 to October 3, 2019. Under the theme “A World Order Under Stress,” the group of 12 undergraduate students from leading American and Chinese universities discussed a wide range of issues including trade, technology, security, human rights, and regional initiatives. They attended meetings with top officials at agencies such as the U.S. Department of State and Chinese Embassy, as well as think tanks and advocacy groups like the Brookings Institution and the U.S.-China Business Council. The fellows also discussed the key values of their respective cultures, and they debated how to handle the toughest problems facing the United States and China.
