From Confrontation to Coopetition: 40 Years of U.S. – China Relations
Wednesday, June 13th, 6:30p.m.
On February 21st 1972, a raw winter day, President Nixon and a handful of government officials flew on an unnamed Boeing 707 flight, landing at Beijing Capital International Airport. The city was deeply bogged down in the torturous Cultural Revolution; anti-imperialist slogans were everywhere. No one could possibly know that Nixon’s one week visit would change the world for the next 40 years. What happened during the President’s weeklong trip? What is the standing relationship between the U.S. and China today? And how does this relationship continue to shape the world? We invite you to join us as global business leaders, two U.S. Ambassadors, and the President of the US-China National Committee speak about the past, present and future of US-China Relations.
