The rise of China over the past two decades has presented both challenges and opportunities for Sino-US relations, transforming the Asia–Pacific region. The US and China both have common interests and have cooperated on a range of global and regional issues but in recent years, tensions over Chinese activities in the East and South China Seas and US rebalancing to Asia have created rising tensions between these two Great Powers. President Trump is the first American President to come to office determined to reset the foundations of the bilateral relationship, many of which date to the US-China rapprochement. With the increasing threat from North Korea will President Trump continue with this approach to China? How would such a change impact U.S. relations with allies and partners?

The Henry Jackson Society is delighted to invite you to an event with Michael Pillsbury, Senior Fellow and Director for Chinese Strategy at the Hudson Institute and Author of The Hundred-Year Marathon who will assess US-China relations policy under the Trump administration.
