On the occasion of Chinese President Hu Jintao's long-awaited visit to the United States this week, Asia Society experts are appearing on public radio's The Takeaway to assess the current state of US-China relations and to comment on the President's trip. 

On Monday, January 17, former Asia Society Bernard Schwartz Fellow and Chairman of the Singapore Institute of International Affairs Simon Tay looked at the US-China relationship with Gideon Rachman, chief foreign affairs commentator for the Financial Times.

Today, Asia Society Fellow Shen Dingli, Director for the Center of American Studies at Shanghai's Fudan University, shed light on the sometimes murky relationship between President Hu Jintao and his own military—and suggested that America and China actually share more military goals than is often supposed.
