U.S.-China relations are arguably at their worst point since diplomatic recognition in 1979, and may be getting worse. In this environment, American researchers organized by the National Committee on American Foreign Policy and the American Friends Service Committee undertook a systematic audit of the U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue (S&ED) to see what benefits were expected from bilateral diplomacy in the past and whether those benefits were realized.
The report that emerged reveals that the United States benefited significantly from the S&ED process. Major areas of progress include stabilizing the international financial system after the global financial crisis, working through regulatory and technical issues culminating in the Paris Agreement, and jointly responding to the Ebola crisis in West Africa.
Join the National Committee on American Foreign Policy and the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations on September 13 at 4:00 p.m. EDT for a virtual program with Tiffany Barron, Rorry Daniels, Dan Jasper, and Susan Thornton discussing the successes and challenges of the S&ED process.
