The NBR Analysis offers thought-provoking essays and briefs on the most important economic, political, and strategic issues in the Asia-Pacific region today.
This essay explores the role that the United States Congress can play in helping to foster mutual understanding between the respective governments and people of China and the United States. Although the United States benefits from ensuring that an effective and educated message emanates from Congress, unfocused debate has lately diluted the effectiveness of Congress—both rhetorically and legislatively—when legitimate issues are brought to the floor. This essay thus seeks to provide a comprehensive overview of trade, security, and other relations between the United States and China, and offers a framework to strengthen bilateral ties.
