Robert Hormats speaks in the Distinguished Lectures on East Asia series -- video available

Mon, January 28, 2008

The Center for East Asian Studies, in collaboration with the LBJ School of Public Affairs and the Center for International Business Education and Research, was proud to present a three-part lecture series entitled, Distinguished Lectures in East Asia. In October 2007, Bill Emmott, former editor-in-chief of The Economist, spoke on recent developments in Japan's political economy and its evolving relationship with China and other countries in East Asia. Last spring, Stephen W. Bosworth, dean of the Tufts School of Law and Diplomacy and former ambassador to S. Korea, explored the historical causes and long-term implications of the ongoing nuclear stand-off in North Korea. On November 19, Robert Hormats, Vice-Chairman of Goldman Sachs, International, brought the series to a close with an analysis of China's rapidly growing economy. Marking the first time that centers and colleges on campus have collaborated on a project relating to East Asia, the series was attended by more than 200 UT faculty and students, as well as members of the Austin community.
