The Future of U.S.-China Relations: A Debate

Past Event

On Monday, May 21, the World Affairs Council of Seattle hosted a debate on the future of Sino-American relations. This debate, convened by the Brookings Institution’s Foreign Policy program and the Charles Koch Institute, in partnership with POLITICO, is the fifth in a series of thematic debates on America’s role in the world.

Hosted in cities around the United States, this series seeks to foster a vigorous, civil and constructive national discussion on the future of American foreign policy. The Seattle debate will address the future of relations between the United States and China, the nature of American interests in the Asia-Pacific, and how the United States should engage diplomatically, military, and economically in East Asia in the 21st century.

Jacqueline Miller, president and CEO of the World Affairs Council of Seattle, provided opening remarks.
