Business and Trade

Georgetown University’s Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues addresses business and trade-related issues and opportunities for cooperation through research, publications, and events that engage faculty, students, and leading stakeholders in both countries.

The U.S.-China Research Group on E-Commerce and Mobile Technology, convened by Abraham Newman of Georgetown University and Henry Farrell of George Washington University in collaboration with Xue Lan of Tsinghua University, brings together innovation and globalization experts from the United States and China for a structured dialogue around key academic and policy issues of interest to both countries and the world. The group met three times in Washington, DC, and Beijing in 2018 and 2019 to address the politics of innovation in an interdependent world.
