The current U.S.-China relationship is fraught: Washington and Beijing are at loggerheads over a long list of issues, including allegations of state-supported cyberattacks, long-simmering trade tensions, a war of words over the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, and concerns over rights abuses in Xinjiang and Hong Kong. Can the Biden administration chart a new course in U.S.-China relations, or will tensions inevitably continue to grow? This panel will look at several core dimensions of the relationship, and explore prospects for collaboration between the two countries on key issues of mutual concern.
