World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth presents Robert Daly
World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth will present Robert Daly for a timely autumn program. Daly will be speaking as key government changes made in the National Congress of the Communist Party of China become apparent. Daley has a reputation for spot-on knowledge and understanding of the Peoples’ Republic and its motivations.
The Economist reported earlier this year that Chinese Party General Secretary and President Xi Jinping had been “busy arranging a huge reshuffle” of the Politburo. Some of the sensitive American involvement with China is decades old, the concept of “One China” that keeps some people on edge about the fate of Taiwan. Other American concerns are relatively new, like China creating islands in the South China Sea and the resulting Chinese territorial claim that has been described as “all of the South China Sea, all of the western Pacific.”
Prior to taking his Kissinger position, Daly was at the Maryland China Initiative at the University of Maryland and the American Director of the Johns Hopkins University-Nanjing University Center for Chinese and American Studies in Nanjing. His wide-ranging career includes government service in several China-related assignments.
