A Conversation with the Honorable Hank Paulson
Start Date: 4/2/2013Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 4/2/2013End Time: 5:30 PM

Pre-registration for this event is now closed.  On April 2, a standby line for GWorld card-holders will form at 4:00 p.m. at the Jack Morton Auditorium Lobby (805 21st Street NW). Unclaimed seats will be released to the standby line on a first come, first served basis.

The George Washington University and FORTUNE will be co-hosting a conversation with former U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson in an exclusive on-stage interview conducted by FORTUNE Managing Editor Andy Serwer.  This discussion, on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at Jack Morton Auditorium, will focus on the significant economic, political, and environmental changes that are unfolding in China.  Doors open at 4 pm.  A reception will follow immediately after the conversation.

Andy Serwer, FORTUNE’s top editor, will conduct the interview in front of an audience of GW students, faculty and staff as well as other invited guests.  This wide-ranging interview will be the subject of an article to be published in FORTUNE, and is also a prelude to a major event to be held this June in Chengdu, China: the FORTUNE Global Forum.

Mr. Paulson has extensive expertise on China business, government, and non-profit environmental sustainability issues. As Treasury Secretary Mr. Paulson established the Strategic Economic Dialogue and played a central role in the creation of the Ten Year Energy and Environment Cooperation Framework. More recently he established The Paulson Institute, a non-partisan independent center at the University of Chicago, to promote sustainable economic growth and a cleaner environment around the world. The Institute is committed to the principle that today’s most pressing economic and environmental challenges can be solved only if leading countries work in complementary ways. For this reason, the Institute’s initial focus is the United States and China—the world’s largest economies, energy consumers, and carbon emitters— whose cooperation is essential to addressing  major economic and environmental challenges.
