Dedicated to the development of the future stewards of U.S.-China relations
We are back after our August respite! Hope everyone had a great summer and used some of that time to get started on the China Syllabi Project! We will also be announcing some exciting DC lecture events soon--stay tuned!
President Obama went to China last week for what is likely his last meeting Xi Jinping and the G20 Summit in Hangzhou. Their meeting offers a chance for reflection and projection, and this week's readings reflect both needs as well as the complex practicality of U.S.-China economic relations. The latter also is embedded within the larger context of China's role within the G20 and the international arena, as Xi's opening speech in Hangzhou attests.
One of the results of treating the U.S.-China relationship as the most important bilateral relationship is curiosity each side has about the other's politics. The U.S. election, if anything, has been a roller coaster ride for foreign observers with much about U.S. politics laid bare. This week's videos are a discussion of Chinese views by Robert Daly of the Woodrow Wilson Center based on a recent trip in China. The first eight minutes are Daly reporting on
his interactions in China before callers engage him in Q&A. The second video is almost the same length and more focused on Chinese views of the U.S. election.
