Later this month China’s President Xi Jinping will visit the United States. From economics to climate change and cybersecurity, there will be no shortage of issues for discussion between him and his counterpart President Obama. For more on what to expect, we spoke with Kissinger Institute Director, Robert Daly.
U.S. Foreign Policy
The Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) has the potential not only to redefine the role that Beijing plays in development assistance, but also in shaping the organizational structure and governance of international financial institutions at large in the future.
In Japan and China, resurgent nationalism has reinforced the political importance of the region’s most powerful nation-states, fed international tensions in the region, and created additional challenges for U.S. policy.
China and Russia demonstrate a growing affinity in their national interests and diplomatic styles. Americans have often dismissed Chinese and Russian international ventures with broad attacks understood by Chinese and Russians as cultural condescension and used by their presidents to consolidate domestic support. The United States would engage China and Russia more effectively by focusing debate on specific policy issues and omitting more general criticism.
