High level officials from China and the United States met in Beijing to discuss a number of economic and geopolitical issues.
It was 2009 when Chinese President Hu Jintao and U.S. President Barack Obama established what has now become the annual, high-level Strategic and Economic Dialogue between the U.S. and China.
Known as S&ED, this year’s meeting, held in Beijing, comes at a time of tension over such issues as the South China Sea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and economic uncertainty.
