Governor Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. takes the stage at the Atlantic Council for the first time since becoming chairman to share his thoughts on the United States’ role in a world of transition. Using his esteemed public service career and commitment to bipartisanship as a backdrop, he will engage in a lively discussion with Council President and CEO Frederick Kempe and the audience on some of the biggest challenges and opportunities shaping US strategy today.

Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. has served four US presidents in critical roles around the world, including as ambassador to Singapore, deputy assistant secretary of commerce for Asia, US trade ambassador, and, most recently, US ambassador to China. Twice elected governor of Utah, Governor Huntsman brought about strong economic reforms, tripled the state’s rainy day fund, and helped bring unemployment rates to historic lows. He ran for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination and currently serves on the boards of Ford Motor Company, Caterpillar Corporation, Chevron Corporation, Huntsman Corporation, the US Naval Academy Foundation, and the University of Pennsylvania.
