AMS Weekly Newsletter
Dedicated to the development of the future stewards of U.S.-China relations
In this week's newsletter we focus on Wang Huning, a suyu delivered by Xi Jinping in Danang, and two job opportunities from Crumpton Group and The American Chamber of Commerce in China.
Weekly Readings

One of the most interesting figures to rise at the 19th Party Congress was Wang Huning. Wang previously ran the Central Policy Research Office, where he had served for more than two decades. He advised Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao before Xi Jinping, and he has left a long paper trail behind him. This week's readings are four different essays exploring Wang's views and experiences, including one by someone who knew Wang well in the 1980s.

On November 11, while everyone else in China was online shopping for Singles Day, Xi Jinping was giving a speech in Danang, Vietnam at the 25th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting. He encouraged members to recognize the major shift in the global economy and to work together to help lead the world into a new round of global development and prosperity.
