The declared key functions of the Committee are to serve as a bridge between the cultures and systems of China and America and also to provide a forum for those issues that Americans of Chinese descent face in bettering their lives in the United States. The Committee aims to serve as cultural ambassadors and to foster the exchange of ideas and various perspectives among its membership with those in the community and government.[4] Committee delegations have been invited to give briefings to top officials at the White House and Zhongnanhai.[2] The Committee has been noted to avoid criticism of the Communist Party of China and it policies.[5][6] A 2018 report by the Hoover Institution noted that Committee members have been targets of United Front Work Department pressure and influence operations.[7]
