MCFR in collaboration with the National Committee on US China Relations invites our members and their guests to participate in the 2020 edition of China Town Hall. In the keynote presentation, renowned investor, author, and philanthropist Ray Dalio will speak on the forces that underpin the most important global issues of our time, and the critical roles of the United States and China in an era of monumental worldwide change.
Mr. Dalio, founder of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, has had a close relationship with China starting in 1985. The Beijing Dalio Foundation supports child welfare and education initiatives in China and together with Bill Gates and three Chinese philanthropists established the China Global Philanthropy Institute, which teaches Chinese philanthropists and policy-makers best practices in philanthropy. Mr. Dalio’s 2017 book "Principles: Life and Work" became a NYTimes business best-seller. His most recent book, The Changing World Order: Why Nations Succeed and Fail, will be released this winter.
Mr. Dalio’s keynote presentation will be streamed directly on the website of the National Committee on US-China Relations.
