The Symposium of “US Election: President Trump, Congress, and the Future of US-China Relations” Was Held at the Central Party School

May 2, 2017

In mid-April the USCET delegation joined the Central Party School’s Institute for International Strategic Studies for a one-day symposium centered on the theme, “US Elections: President Trump, Congress, and the Future of US-China Relations,”. This event was the 7th time that USCET and the Central Party School have collaborated and was a follow up to the CPS Fall Elections Symposium held in Washington DC in 2016.

Former US Congressmen and more than 30 scholars from American University, Columbia University, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Tsinghua University, University of International Relations, Renmin University, Institute of Diplomacy, National Defense University, as well as the Central Party School attended the event. Professor Liu Jianfei, vice president of the International Strategic Research Institute, and Ambassador Julia Chang Bloch, President of USCET moderated the meeting and gave welcome speeches. Professor Zhou Tianyong and Gong Li attended and participated in discussion.

Professor Liu Jianfei pointed out that this symposium is one of the important achievements of the International Strategic Research Institute and USCET, which will be helpful for enhancing our understanding of American Politics model and domestic political operation procedure. US-China Relations is one of the most important and complex bilateral relations in the world. In the process, the role of think tanks is very important. Through the in-depth exchanges between experts from both sides, we can deepen the understanding and further foster the strategic trust between the two countries.  Ambassador Bloch said that the symposium was held in a timely manner and provided an important platform for Chinese and American scholars to analyze the future development of US-China Relations. 

Especially after Trump became president of the United States, scholars from both countries should discuss their domestic and foreign policy, which helps us to have a better understanding of US. This symposium was going to contribute more insights for the healthy development of US-China Relations.

Participates had a heated discussion of the five issues: “How did Trump Change the US Election,” “Trump and Congress: competing opponents?” “Trump Government:  Administrative Order, Regulatory Process, and Deregulation,” “The Cultural and Economic Problems of 2016 Election: Past, Current, and Future,” and “The Future of US-China Relations in the Era of Trump.” Scholars exchanged their perspectives. Even though they had some different point of views, the discussion yielded substantial results.

有关“美国大选:特朗普总统、国会、和中美关系走向”的研讨会在中共中央党校举行

2017年5月2日

 

4月19日,中央党校与USCET联合主办的“美国大选:特朗普总统、国会和中美关系走向”研讨会在中央党校召开。本次活动为USCET与中央党校合作举办的第七次研讨会,同时是2016年在华盛顿特区举办的中央党校秋季竞选研讨会的后续会议。

前国会议员以及三十多名来自美利坚大学、哥伦比亚大学、中国社科院、清华大学、国际关系学院、中国人民大学、外交学院、国防大学、中央党校等机构的学者参加了此次会议。会议由国际战略研究院副院长刘建飞教授、中美教育基金会主席张之香大使主持并致辞。周天勇教授与宫力教授出席并参与了讨论。

刘建飞教授指出本次研讨会是国际关系学院与USCET的一次重要成就,它有助于加强国内对美国政治运作模型的认知,和增进对美国国内政治运作步骤的了解。中美关系是世界上最重要也最复杂的双边关系之一。在二者之间,智库的存在十分重要。通过双方专家深入交流,才能加深两国之间的理解,培养战略信任关系。张之香大使表示此次的研讨会非常及时,为中美学者提供了一个可以分析中美关系未来走向的平台。

特别是在特朗普成为美国总统后,两国学者更应该讨论双方的内政和外交政策,使中国进一步理解美国。此次研讨会将会为中美关系健康发展带来更多见解。

研讨会围绕着“特朗普如何改变了美国大选”、“特朗普和国会:竞争对手?”、“特朗普政府:行政命令、监管过程、放松管制”、“2016大选的文化和经济问题:过去、现在和未来”、“特朗普时代中美关系的未来” 五个议题展开了激烈的讨论。学者各自阐述的观点虽然有所不同,但收获颇多。
