About "He Talks"
Mr. He Yafei has always been a person in the know. As one of the top diplomats with China's Foreign Ministry during the first decade of the 21st century, Mr. He directed China's teams in multilateral international negotiations, including the climate change talks, and dealt directly with the U.S. State Department at key junctures in bilateral ties. After his retirement from the public service, he became a sought-after public speaker, an academic on globalization and China's diplomacy, and a strong advocate for a robust China-US relationship. With "He Talks", we are tapping into this veteran Chinese diplomat-turned academic for his take on issues pertinent to China-US relations.
