Howard Milstein Joins Board of National Committee on United States-China RelationsJune 1st, 2015
Howard Milstein was elected to the Board of the National Committee on United States-China Relations and joins a distinguished group of global leaders from business, academia, government, research institutions and the legal sector. Howard’s interests in U.S.-China relations include breakthrough business and philanthropic initiatives.
The Committee is a nonprofit educational organization that encourages understanding of China and the United States between citizens of both countries. Established in 1966 by a broad coalition of scholars and civic, religious, and business leaders, the Committee was founded in the belief that vigorous debate of China policy among Americans was essential and that balanced public education could clarify U.S. interests and strengthen our foreign policy. The Committee focuses its exchange, educational and policy programs on international relations, economic development and management, governance and legal affairs, environmental and other global concerns, mass communication, and education administration. The Committee’s programs draw strength from its members, who now number more than 750 American and nearly 85 corporations and professional firms. They represent many viewpoints, but share the belief that increased public knowledge of China and U.S.-China relations requires ongoing public education, face-to-face contact and forthright exchange of ideas. The work of the National Committee is made possible by grants from the United States Department of State, the U.S. Department of Education, private foundations, corporate sponsors, and the Committee’s members and other interested citizens.
