October 15, 2015

The U.S. Consulate General in Shanghai invites you to join U.S Consul General Hanscom Smith on a conference call to discuss the U.S. secondary school recruitment market in East China. The call will take place on Tuesday, October 20 from 7:00-8:00 P.M. EST (China Time: Wednesday, October 21 from 7:00-8:00 A.M.)

Each year, thousands of students from East China apply to attend secondary schools in the United States. Applicants and their families value high-quality American education, and there has been tremendous growth in demand for student visas. U.S. Consul General Hanscom Smith invites you to join him and a panel of experts to discuss ways to access the large and growing recruitment market in East China for American secondary education.

Our panel includes:

  •  United States Consul General Hanscom Smith, Host
  • Daniel Duane, Commercial Officer, U.S. Department of Commerce in Shanghai
  • Brooke Moppert, Senior Deputy Nonimmigrant Visa Chief, U.S. Consulate Shanghai

After providing a brief overview of the East China market for American secondary education, the panel will be available to answer specific questions about the exciting opportunities and challenges of attracting more Chinese students to attend school in the United States. In order to participate in this call, you must RSVP.
