Mike Chinoy Mike Chinoy

Thanks to the Parvin Fellow Program at UHM, the China Seminar is very privileged to have the rare opportunity to hear Mike Chinoy, former CNN Beijing Bureau Chief. Mr. Chinoy will draw on his knowledge of China and Asia to discuss China-U.S. relations in the 21st Century. The US pivot toward China signals that this is a significant relationship that can lead to greater cooperation and conflict. He plans to offer his thoughts on where that relationship is headed in the future.
