After four years of the Trump administration, that saw relations between the United States and China sink to new lows, could that be about to change? When Joe Biden was sworn in as president this week, he talked about Washington’s readiness to re-engage with the world again. China has congratulated President Biden and is calling for quote –”courage and wisdom”- to help put China-U.S. relations back on the right track. But there are big challenges ahead as both sides try to move on from the legacy of the Trump administration.
Joining the discussion:
- Victor Gao is a Chair Professor at Soochow University.
- Cheng Li is Senior Fellow and Director of the China Center at the Brookings Institution.
- Jeff Moon is the former Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for China and President of China Moon Strategies.
- Yan Liang is an economics professor at Willamette University.
