ADVISORY: Taking Stock of the U.S.-China Relationship: Experts from Washington and Beijing Forecast Challenges and Opportunities for the Next Presidential Meeting
Washington D.C. — On Tuesday, October 14, 2014, the Center for American Progress will convene a group of U.S. and Chinese experts to assess progress in U.S.-China relations since the Sunnylands Summit and to offer policy recommendations for both sides as President Barack Obama prepares for his next China trip. The scholars participating in this dialogue are top foreign policy experts in their 30s and 40s who began their careers when the diplomatic door was open and U.S.-China exchanges were allowed and encouraged.
This group of rising scholars has spent more time immersed in each other’s language, political environment, and cultural environment than any generation before them. That gives this new generation of rising experts in both nations a unique perspective and a profound opportunity to work together and seek innovative solutions to currently intractable challenges. CAP will release written reports in November featuring this group’s views and recommendations. On Tuesday afternoon, CAP will host a public session to preview their thinking and to provide an opportunity for your questions.
