A State Visit in Interesting Times: Looking at the Obama-Xi Summit

China is often credited with the proverb “May you live in interesting times.” That is only too true when looking toward Chinese President Xi Jinping’s state visit to the United States. The standard line is that U.S.-China relations remain positive, with exceptions on certain issues. These exceptions are growing in frequency and gravity, all requiring responses from the Administration. Economic freedom. Human Rights. Cybersecurity. Intellectual property. Environment. Military power projection. An interesting time indeed for a state visit as these difficult issues will be addressed in person, leader to leader. Please join us as Senator Cory Gardner and our expert panelists discuss what will, and what should, be the outcome of the state visit.
