The New Strategic and Economic Dialogue with China: Fresh Start or Waste of Time?

This video is currently unavailable

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

The Obama Administration has rechristened the Strategic Economic Dialogue with China as the Strategic and Economic Dialogue and intends to emphasize different topics, such as climate change.  The new S&ED meets only once annually, with the 2009 meetings scheduled for July 27-28 in Washington.  That puts a good deal of pressure on each round to at least create conditions for improved bilateral relations.  Our panel will discuss trade, finance, the environment and other issues.  Can the S&ED accomplish something worthwhile or is it much ado about nothing?
