The United States is the world’s largest economy, and by many measures has the most capable military forces. After 30 years of rapid economic development, China has become the world’s second largest economy; at the same time, its military power is rapidly increasing. As a result, the two nation’s internal conditions, as well as their relationships will have a significant influence on the global state‐of‐affairs for the remainder of the 21st century. This conference is designed to bring academics, researchers and practitioners to exchange and explore various aspects of their complex bilateral relationship.
