Asia Society Texas Center says
Henry (Hank) Paulson, Jr. has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury Secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. He negotiated with China on needed economic reforms, while safeguarding the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades.

Paulson, in conversation with Ambassador Edward Djerejian, joins Asia Society to discuss his latest book, Dealing with China. He draws on his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to answer several key questions:

• How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?

• How does business really get done there?

• What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to work with, compete with, and benefit from China?

• How can the U.S. negotiate with and influence China given its authoritarian rule, its massive environmental concerns, and its huge population's unrelenting demands for economic growth and security?

'Dealing with China' will be available for purchase at the program.
