The Carter Center Forum on U.S.-China Relations, Nov. 11-12, 2013

The Carter Center, founded by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in 1982, has worked for over 16 years to foster mutual understanding between the people of the U.S. and China. President Carter’s reputation as the American leader who established diplomatic ties with China in 1979 has allowed the Center a unique and unparalleled role in bringing the two countries closer together. Since 1996, the Center has provided assistance in a variety of sectors in Chinese society, ranging from training special education teachers to advancing government accountability, and has become one of the most well-known American organizations in China. 卡特中心是美国前总统吉米·卡特和其夫人罗莎琳于1982年建立的非营利、非政府组织。卡特总统于1979年作为美国总统与中国建交。过去30年间,卡特中心一直致力于改善中美关系。1996年伊始, 卡特中心已连续16年为促进中美两国人民间的互相理解作出努力,并成为在中国最有声望的美国公益组织之一。卡特中心为中国社会各个领域提供支持,包括为聋哑人教师提供培训、改善农村公共卫生以及推进政府信息公开。
On Nov. 11, 2013, The Carter Center will host a forum on U.S.-China relations at its headquarters in Atlanta, Ga. As the inaugural event of a new project on improving U.S.-China relations, the forum marks the Center’s renewed commitment in engaging China, at the invitation of President Xi Jinping and in partnership with U.S. businesses and academic institutions. President Carter will speak at the event,  joined by his former National Security Advisor, Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski. 2013年11月11日,卡特中心将在其位于美国佐治亚州亚特兰大市的总部举办中美关系论坛。习近平主席曾在卡特总统2012年访华之际邀请卡特中心致力于促进中美关系的健康发展。此次论坛则标志着卡特中心对改善中美关系所作出的重要承诺。卡特总统将在论坛的开幕式上发表讲话,美国前国家安全顾问兹比格涅夫·布热津斯基博士也将与会并致辞 。

These ideas will be shared and discussed with forum participants and help guide the Center’s work in China in the coming years.
