The state of the U.S.-China relationship is far from ideal. There are disagreements on trade, governing philosophies, international rules of the game, relations with Russia, and so much more, all in the midst of great power competition. And yet over the last few months, the U.S. government has sent the U.S. Secretary of State, Secretary of Commerce, and Secretary of the Treasury to meet with their counterparts in China. What has been accomplished by those meetings? What hasn’t? What’s next? And how can these great powers get along well enough to help address the planet’s greatest existential challenges. Join us for a moderated conversation with Professor Zhiguo He, Professor Chang-Tai Hsieh, and Professor Kenneth Pomeranz to discuss trade disagreements, governing philosophies, Russian relations, and the progress made in recent State meetings with the U.S. Secretary of State, Secretary of Commerce, and Secretary of the Treasury. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Michael Kulma, Assistant Director of Programs and Communications, International House at the University of Chicago.
