Dr Zhang was recently a panel speaker at the Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century organised by the United State's Federal Trade Commission from 25-26 March 2019 in Washington DC. The 11th session was titled "The FTC's Role in a Changing World" and focused on the agency's international work. It explored the FTC’s international role in light of globalization, technological change, and the increasing number of competition, consumer protection, and privacy laws and enforcement agencies around the world. Speakers addressed the implications of international developments on the FTC’s work on behalf of American consumers. Dr Zhang spoke on a panel with three other professors including Francesca Bignami (George Washington University), Christopher Yoo (University of Pennsylvania) and Philip Masden (College of Europe). During the hearing, Dr Zhang referred to several of her articles on EU courts and judges and the institutional challenges in Chinese antitrust enforcement.
