The NCAFP held its annual U.S.-China Strategic Dialogue in New York on April 5, bringing together a group of respected Chinese and American scholars, experts and policy practitioners. Despite expectations of a bilateral trade agreement in the near future, the general view was that a broad range of differences over structural economic and trade issues, security interests and human rights values are likely to expand and deepen in the coming years, possibly leading to a scenario resembling the Cold War. American participants expressed particularly strong concerns about the “re-education camps” for over a million Muslims in Xinjiang that undermine the core values of the liberal international order. Chinese and American participants called for more dialogue and interactions to produce concrete changes in policies and behavior as well as greater cooperation on regional and global issues.
