Florence Fang, Chair of the Summit and honorary trustee of Peking University, said in her speech: “The United States of America & the People’s Republic of China’s relationship kicked off on April 1971, when the national American Table Tennis team visited China, known by the world as the “Ping-Pong Diplomacy”.

“During these past 40 years, the two countries’ relationship has been up and down, but has gone in a positively forward. Although the last couple years have been turbulent, I think the base of the relationship, people-to-people friendship has to continue. That is why I am motivated to have this Summit. ”

“Today’s commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of normalized relations between the United States and China, is not just a celebration. But also to reflect on the past, examine the present and hope for the future.”
