Thank you to all who made the 5th Annual Tufts China-US Symposium a stellar sucess!
The China-US Symposium, 塔夫兹大学中美关系年会, believes in building on the crossroads of ideas, nations, and people, at Tufts University. To do this, we seek to bring the communities of Tufts and Boston, into close contact with the experts and practitioners of international relations of China and the United States.
