Poll: Do You See Major Changes in China-US Relations Going Forward?

Posted In: Economics

The two-day Obama-Xi summit at the Annenberg Retreat in California was an unprecedented event in relations between China and the United States. The focus of the summit, as reported, was on enhancing understanding and not on determining immediate deliverables. The summit concluded last week, so we asked readers of the CFA Institute Financial NewsBrief whether they expect to see major changes in China-US relations going forward.

President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping wrapped up their China-US summit in California over the weekend with talk of opening up new types of ties and more economic cooperation. Do you see major changes in China-US relations going forward?
Poll: Do You See Major Changes in China-US Relations Going Forward?

About 59% of respondents from the Asia-Pacific edition answered “No,” a bit less pessimistic than respondents reading the global edition (64%). Respondents’ views are probably similar to those expressed in the Council on Foreign Relations blog post, “Can the United States and China Speak the Same Language?” Despite some reservations, the author believes that the summit brought new and more positive energy to the countries’ relationship. This sentiment appears consistent with the presentation on June 12 by China’s vice-foreign minister, Fu Ying, “A New Kind of Great Power Relationship?” Fu Ying, spokeswoman for China’s National People’s Congress, confirmed that the summit is on track to build “mutual respect, mutual trust, and win-win cooperation” between the United States and China.
