Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs Tara Sonenshine will travel to Beijing May 3-4 to serve as co-coordinator of the third annual U.S.-China Consultation on People-to-People Exchange (CPE) with Chinese Vice Minister of Education Hao Ping.
Recognizing the fundamental role that citizens play in fostering mutual understanding and cooperation between the United States and China, both countries inaugurated the Consultation on People-to-People Exchange in Beijing on May 25, 2010, and held a second CPE April 11-12, 2011, in Washington, D.C. The CPE aims to promote and strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and China in the fields of education, culture, science and technology, sports, and women’s issues. It provides a high-level annual forum for government and private-sector representatives to discuss cooperation in a broad, strategic manner.
