The Mosbacher Institute organizes a series of conferences on economic diplomacy

The Mosbacher Institute at the Bush School of Government and Public Service is pleased to present a series of lectures on economic diplomacy as part of the Bush School’s 25th anniversary celebration. This engaging series will feature some of the best-known names in economic diplomacy and explore the tools needed to negotiate in today’s global economic environment.

China’s very aggressive and expansive strategy to gain influence in the developing world by funding critical infrastructure projects is proof that global power is not only determined by diplomatic or military might, but also by ability to enable and sustain economic development and growth. This has never been more apparent than today.

This series of lectures highlights the tools of American economic diplomacy that are essential to advancing a free market rule of law model for economic growth and countering China’s authoritarian capitalist approach. This three-part series is designed for those who wish to understand the various economic tools that are an essential part of American foreign policy, including foreign aid, trade, and development finance.
