Gorton Center Discussion Series Presents: U.S.-China Environmental Engagement

Challenges and Strategic Opportunities

On May 5, 2016, the Slade Gorton International Policy Center hosted a panel discussion on the rise, impact, and goals of environmental engagement between China and the United States, particularly in the state of Washington. In this policy discussion, various projects were discussed, including lessons learned from the recently withdrawn application to build a methanol plant in Tacoma by Northwest Innovation Works, a China-backed company.

Speakers included:

Dr. David Bachman, Professor, Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington

Andrew Crowder, Business Development Manager, Office of Economic Development and Competitiveness, Washington State Department of Commerce

Daniel Miller, PhD Student, Jackson School of International Studies, University of Washington

This program was planned and developed by the students of the Gorton Center Global Leaders Program, a year-long leadership development program for undergraduate, graduate, and law students from the Puget Sound area.

The roundtable discussion was moderated by former U.S. Senator Slade Gorton.


The Slade Gorton International Policy Center will be the living legacy of Senator Gorton’s extraordinary contributions to the Nation and Washington State. The Gorton Center will have three research priorities. First, the Gorton Center will incorporate and build on ongoing NBR initiatives to sponsor research in economics and trade, energy security, energy and the environment, and other important issues.
