November 7th 9:00 AM EDT – Flora Huang – A new pathway to investing in China
As more investors and novice corporate finance executives outside China begin to begin their journey tapping into China’s long term growth, and Chinese investors into investment opportunities in the West, they will likely want to know more how about a novel channel – Stock Connect. – and its implications on local and global financial markets.

November 17th 9:15 AM EDT – ZHA Daojiong – China Expert Views Joe Biden-Xi Jinping Meeting
Two Presidents Joe Biden and Xi Jinping, will meet Wednesday 15 November for their most consequential diplomatic rendezvous in many years.
The world has many questions for them including:
“Whether the United States and China are inevitably cruising toward confrontation or whether the two countries can strike some balance between engagement and competition, and, in the process, bring stability to the world.
The U.S. hopes to resume military communications that were broken off last year and China hopes that the U.S. will emphatically recognize Beijing as the sole government of China.
“But, there is hope”
“We have a $700 billion trading relationship with China. The vast majority — 99 percent of that — has nothing to do with export controls,” Gina Raimondo, the commerce secretary, told CNN this weekend.
“Xi told a visiting U.S. congressional delegation last month that there were “a thousand reasons to make U.S.- China relations better, and no reason to make them worse (Slate Magazine.)
Still, China’s economy is stumbling and Xi Jinping could use some U.S. help; meanwhile, Biden is in full election mode and could use some patience and understanding from China.

November 28th 9:30 AM EDT – Thomas Sherlock – Russia Through the eyes of President Putin
Why it is that in the war with Ukraine, even after the death of thousands of Russians servicemen and women, the Russian people have not overthrown Mr. Putin?
• Is the China/Russia partnership is an alliance of convenience? What is the glue that holds the alliance together. Is this alliance a permanent change in their relationship?
• Might it be possible, even after the horrors of this conflict, as part of a long-term settlement to this war to include Russia in a Europe-wide security compact?
• Was the Mid-East conflict a gift to Russia in that the West is more divided. How might the ME conflict impact the China/Russia compact?
