Ambassador J. Stapleton Roy has witnessed China’s economic and global transformation firsthand.
Roy was born in Nanjing, China, where his parents were educational missionaries and had a distinguished career in the US Foreign Service specializing in Asia affairs.
He had a front seat to history when the United States and China formally established diplomatic ties in 1978. And later became a three-time Ambassador serving in China, Singapore and Indonesia.
Roy is also the founding director emeritus at the Wilson Center’s Kissinger Institute on China and the United States.
