AGENCY:

U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of open public hearing—March 10, 2011 Washington, DC.

SUMMARY:

Notice is hereby given of the following hearing of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

Name: William A. Reinsch, Chairman of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

The Commission is mandated by Congress to investigate, assess, and report to Congress annually on “the national security implications of the economic relationship between the United States and the People's Republic of China.”

Pursuant to this mandate, the Commission will hold a public hearing in Washington, DC on March 10, 2011, to address “China's Narratives Regarding National Security Policy.”

Background: This is the third public hearing the Commission will hold during its 2011 report cycle to collect input from leading academic, industry, and government experts on national security implications of the U.S. bilateral trade and economic relationship with China. The March 10 hearing will examine the various narratives emerging from China in regards to Chinese foreign and national security policy. By examining these narratives in greater detail, the hearing will seek to offer greater insight into policy debates inside the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regarding China's relations with other countries, and China's future role in the world. The March 10 hearing will be co-chaired by Commissioners Jeffrey Fiedler and Dennis Shea.

Any interested party may file a written statement by March 10, 2011, by mailing to the contact below. A portion of each panel will include a question and answer period between the Commissioners and the witnesses.
