Mr. Hu Comes to Washington: A View from the Hill

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

When Chinese President Hu Jintao visits Washington on April 20, his reception is likely to be cool. The U.S.-China relationship is increasingly strained as Washington eyes Asia's new "military superpower" (as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice described) and a likely "peer competitor" (U.S. Director of National Intelligence, John Negroponte's view). President Bush and President Hu will confront a range of issues: North Korea, Iran, energy security, China's military buildup, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, human rights, trade imbalances and - of course - Taiwan. What can we expect from this important meeting? What does Congress think? Please join us for a panel discussion featuring key Hill staff as they examine the future of the U.S.-China relationship on the eve of President Hu's visit to the United States.
