Gleysteen, Jr., Donald Anderson, a retired foreign service officer, and Yu Enguang, a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of China's National People's Congress and Executive Vice-Chairman of the Council of the China International Cultural Exchange Center, each discussed the topic and responded to thoughtful questions from an audience of sixty. Following the panel discussion, the Honorable Stanley Roth, Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, and General Alexander M. Haig, Jr., an Honorary Advisor of the Foundation delivered remarks on the future of U.S.-China relations and the challenges inherent in current relations respectively to luncheon guests.
