On October 16th, USCET President and Founder Julia Chang Bloch participated at the 2015 Young Scholars Forum hosted by The Carter Center’s China Program. This year’s forum, Voice of the Generation: How U.S.-China Relations Will Shape the International Order of the Future, analyzed a variety of dimensions within the two states’ complex multi-faceted relationship.

Panel members identified points of conflict and cooperation within the current framework and possible solutions to improve the relationship in the future. In asking why the US and China should meet halfway, Ambassador Bloch challenged the notion that the two countries ought to both cede equal ground in any quid pro quo arrangements. Ms. Bloch no doubt drew from her own Foreign Service experience in prioritizing the formation of a sustainable foundation between the US and China.

10月16日,USCET主席张之香参加了由卡特中心中国项目举办的2015中美青年学者论坛。本次论坛的主题为“青年一代的声音:中美新型大国关系影响下的未来国际格局”,分析了两国复杂的多边关系中的不同维度。

座谈会成员指出在当前框架下出现的冲突点和合作点,并建议未来要如何改善关系。在问及为什么中美双方需要相互让步时,张之香大使对两国在进行任何交换条件时都应该放弃平等立场的观点发表了质疑。张之香大使毫无疑问从自己的外交经验中汲取了中美可持续性发展基础中的优先顺序。
