Asia Society Texas Center presents "A Conversation with Henry Paulson, Former Treasury Secretary"
Henry (Hank) Paulson Jr. has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury Secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. He negotiated with China on needed economic reforms, while safeguarding the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades.
Paulson, in conversation with Ambassador Edward Djerejian, joins Asia Society to discuss his latest book, Dealing with China.
