The Future of US-China Relations Under the Next US AdministrationVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Coffee/Tea reception: 4:30pm
As security frictions in Asia intensify and China continues to expand its global influence, the new U.S. president will face substantial challenges and opportunities in the management of U.S.-China relations — from North Korea to the South China Sea, from trade to cyber security. How should the new U.S. administration approach its China policy? Just days after the U.S. presidential election, Douglas H. Paal, Vice President for Studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and former Director of Asian Affairs under Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush, will discuss how the U.S. and China can advance bilateral relations amid changing domestic, regional and global dynamics.
Douglas H. Paal is Vice President for Studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He served as Vice Chairman of JPMorgan Chase International (2006–2008) and was an unofficial U.S. representative to Taiwan as Director of the American Institute in Taiwan (2002–2006). Dr. Paal was on the National Security Council staffs of Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush between 1986 and 1993 as Director of Asian Affairs and then as Senior Director and Special Assistant to the President. He obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Chinese Studies and Asian History from Brown University and PhD in History and East Asian languages from Harvard University.
