Entering its eleventh year in 2014,  the China-U.S. Symposium is limited to approximately 120 participants and is by invitation-only. The event attracts senior financial leaders, high-ranking government officials, and distinguished academics from the United States and China for intensive, off-the-record dialogue on issues affecting international capital markets. 

Off-the-record and closed to the media, the PIFS Symposia convene leading market practitioners at off-site retreat venues. The cornerstone of PIFS Symposia is the candid, intimate exchange of ideas and dialogue between global financial counterparts. This dialogue takes place in small group discussions and plenary sessions, as well as in more informal sessions at meals. Keynote addresses and panel discussions also serve to initiate and enhance the interactive dialogue, which is conducted under Chatham House Rules in order to foster an open exchange of ideas. These discussions are synthesized and presented on the final day of the Symposium in a plenary session, and then summarized and published in a final Symposium report that is distributed to participants. At the conclusion of each Symposium, participants leave with an enhanced sense of the key capital markets and financial and regulatory issues affecting market practitioners and policymakers.
