Notice of Open Public Hearing

AGENCY: U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission.

ACTION: Notice of open public hearing--March 10, 2011 Washington, DC.


SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given of the following hearing of the U.S.-
China Economic and Security Review Commission.
    Name: William A. Reinsch, Chairman of the U.S.-China Economic and 
Security Review Commission.
    The Commission is mandated by Congress to investigate, assess, and 
report to Congress annually on ``the national security implications of 
the economic relationship between the United States and the People's 
Republic of China.''
    Pursuant to this mandate, the Commission will hold a public hearing 
in Washington, DC on March 10, 2011, to address ``China's Narratives 
Regarding National Security Policy.''
    Background: This is the third public hearing the Commission will 
hold during its 2011 report cycle to collect input from leading 
academic, industry, and government experts on national security 
implications of the U.S. bilateral trade and economic relationship with 
China. The March 10 hearing will examine the various narratives 
emerging from China in regards to Chinese foreign and national security 
policy. By examining these narratives in greater detail, the hearing 
will seek to offer greater insight into policy debates inside the 
Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regarding China's relations with other 
countries, and China's future role in the world. The March 10 hearing 
will be co-chaired by Commissioners Jeffrey Fiedler and Dennis Shea.
    Any interested party may file a written statement by March 10, 
2011, by mailing to the contact below. A portion of each panel will 
include a question and answer period between the Commissioners and the

    Date and Time: Thursday, March 10, 2011, 9:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

will be posted to the Commission's Web site at http://www.uscc.gov as 
soon as available.
