Former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson to speak at SAIS

Henry M. “Hank” Paulson Jr., former U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, will speak at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

Paulson will talk about “The United States and China: Five Principles for Strengthening the Global Economy” at this event, which is co-hosted by SAIS and the University of Chicago, where Paulson is a distinguished senior fellow at the Harris School of Public Policy Studies.

Earlier this year, he founded the Paulson Institute, an independent center located at the University of Chicago and dedicated to fostering international engagement, with a special emphasis on relationships between the United States and China. The institute initially is concentrating on two areas: encouraging progress in environmental protection and the development of alternative sources of clean energy; and promoting economic activity and cross-investment between the two countries, leading to the creation of jobs.

From January 2009 to June 2010, Paulson was based at SAIS as a distinguished visiting scholar and Bernard L. Schwartz Forum on Constructive Capitalism fellow.

Non-SAIS affiliates who would like to attend the event, which will be held in the Nitze Building’s Kenney Auditorium, should RSVP to bit.ly/Paulson-oct25.

A live webcast of the event will be accessible at www.sais-jhu.edu.
