So long as the steady churn of human progress never ceases, new and exciting developments will always abound in every sphere of the modern world. At Brown China Summit 2022, we hope to distill such developments in a series of engaging and informative lecture panels, featuring the insights of luminaries from across the globe whose achievements range from skillfully navigating the world of political economics to redefining civic architecture as we know it.

Currently, Brown China Summit is pleased to announce the attendance of a vast and accomplished list of confirmed speakers. some of whom include Robert Lawrence Kuhn, an eminent political advisor responsible for momentous growth in the Chinese government and economy; Massimiliano Fuksas, a renowned Italian-Lithuanian architect; Shuran Huang, a Cantonese photojournalist based in Washington, D.C; Wen Wang, Executive Dean of Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies and Deputy Dean of Silk Road School at the Renmin University of China; Arthur R. Kroeber, a partner and head of research at Gavekal (world's leading independent providers of financial research), and more listed in the schedule.

At Brown China Summit 2022, we hope that students from the Brown community of all backgrounds and interests will find something in our speakers which resonates with them.

Brown China Summit (BCS) is an annual two-day event held at Brown University with the goal of promoting cross-cultural discussion of China-related topics among the Brown community. BCS is student run and since the summit’s inception in 2014, has brought together hundreds of Brown students each year into conversation with a diverse group of speakers – ranging from scholars, government officials and corporate representatives – to highlight trends and discuss issues critical not only to China, but to the world as a whole.
