About 500 people filled Graham Chapel on Washington University in St. Louis' Danforth Campus on Feb. 25 to hear Huntsman discuss the present and future opportunities and challenges facing our nation. The former ambassador to China also gave his thoughts on what America’s relationship with China should be in the future.
