DiCarlo, President and CEO of the NCAFP, has been appointed Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs at the United Nations. Accordingly, she will formally relinquish her position with the NCAFP effective May 1, 2018.

A U.S.-China Strategic Dialogue Report
On March 26, 2018 the NCAFP held its annual U.S.-China Strategic Dialogue in New York, bringing together respected Chinese and American scholars, experts and policy practitioners. The discussion took place at a time of rising tension in Sino–U.S. relations, brought on by fear of a looming trade war and by Trump administration policy statements defining China as a rising power which seeks to shape a world antithetical to American interests.
