Johns Hopkins SAIS to host “U.S.-China Relations in the Era of Donald Trump and Xi Jinping” on Wednesday, September 27, 2017

MEDIA ADVISORY
 
The SAIS China Forum will host “U.S.-China Relations in the Era of Donald Trump and Xi Jinping” at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).
 
The U.S.-China relationship has always presented challenges for leaders of both countries, with increasing frictions even before Chinese President Xi Jinping took office almost five years ago. Other developments since then, including the inauguration of U.S. President Donald Trump, have compounded uncertainties and risks.
 
Dr. David M. Lampton, the Director of China Studies at Johns Hopkins SAIS and former President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, will discuss:

  • The state of relations between Beijing and Washington
  • The core challenges facing the U.S.-China relationship
  • Three areas that need additional focus and an adjusted U.S. approach to address relations with China and the broader Asian region
  • The two countries working together to address challenges with North Korea
