Breakfast Briefing: U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission Roundtable

26 June 2014

Level 13, Gateway, 1 Macquarie Place, Sydney, 2000

The Australia China Business Council is delighted to host a breakfast roundtable with five commissioners and two staff members from the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission on Thursday 26 June.

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USSC) was created by the U.S. Congress in October 2000 with the legislative mandate to monitor, investigate, and submit to Congress an annual report on the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship between the United States and the People’s Republic of China, and to provide recommendations, where appropriate, to Congress for legislative and administrative action.

The commission would like to meet with members of the Australia China Business Council to discuss China's growing economic and military presence in Asia and to obtain your perspective as to what you think it means for Australia as well as to the other countries in Asia.  The commissioners would like to obtain your recommendations, if any, on what changes you would like to see enacted to address this growing economic and military presence.  The Commissioners would also like to discuss the implications of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) with roundtable attendees.

Commissioners are appointed by the leadership in the House and Senate and serve two year terms.  The commissioners have traveled to Asia generally every six months to meet with appropriate individuals in the various countries of Asia.  This is their first visit to Australia.
