As the former U.S. ambassador to Honduras, Mexico, the Philippines, the United Nations, and Iraq, and the inaugural Director of National Intelligence, Ambassador Negroponte is uniquely qualified to help us explore the shifting foreign and security policy landscape that faces the United States this year. Ambassador Negroponte's remarks will focus on the U.S.-China relationship, the evolution of U.S. security priorities since the creation of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and U.S. leadership priorities in 2019.
