PRESS CALL ADVISORY: Previewing Chinese President Hu’s State Visit

Chinese President Hu Jintao arrives in Washington for a state visit next week, with hopes high in both capitals that his trip may serve to smooth out the edges of a U.S.-China relationship that has frayed over the past year. Clashes over security, the global economy, and differing political and government values challenge the relationship today. China is fast becoming the touchstone against which everything wrong with the U.S. economy and competitiveness is measured, creating great expectations for the summit.

To preview the visit and discuss two new papers on the Sino-U.S. relationship, the Center for American Progress will host a press call with our experts in the fields of foreign, economic, and energy policy.

WHAT: Preview of the state visit of Chinese President Hu and the release of the papers, "Conduct Befitting a Great Power: Responsibility and Sovereignty in U.S.-China Relations" and "Rising to the Challenge: A Progressive U.S. Approach to China’s Innovation and Competitiveness Policies"
