    EXHIBITION UNTIL JULY 3, 2017 – WeChat is a mobile messaging app, developed in China, with more than 600 million users worldwide. Combining the functions of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, WeChat has become the primary means of communication for members of China’s younger generation, now living and working throughout the world.

    This emphasis on global communication transcending local culture is the key focus of the exhibition, We Chat: A Dialogue in Contemporary Chinese Art, which brings together 10 young Chinese artists, some still based in mainland China and others living abroad.

    China’s Banking Transformation: The Untold Story

    6 East 43rd Street, 24th Floor - New York, National Committee on U.S.-China Relations

    China watchers have long predicted the imminent collapse of China’s banking system. Between increased reliance on unstable funding sources, and an expanding credit to GDP gap, experts’ concerns are not unwarranted – yet the collapse has not happened. In China’s Banking Transformation: The Untold Story, former banking director James Stent looks at what the experts have been missing, and why their predictions have not materialized. On June 5, Mr. Stent will join National Committee President Stephen Orlins for a discussion of his book, his views on the Chinese banking sector, and the implications for our understanding of China’s political economy overall.
