Chinese Foreign Policy at the 60th Anniversary of the PRC
October 1, 2009, marked the 60th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Over the past sixty years China has undergone profound economic, political, and social changes. As the country sets its sights to the future and becomes an influential—if not yet shaping—presence on the world stage, numerous questions regarding its foreign policy priorities persist.
In order to explore these issues, the Pyle Center for Northeast Asian Studies at the National Bureau of Asian Research and the Center for Chinese Foreign Policy Studies at Fudan University’s Institute of International Studies organized a workshop in Shanghai, China, on October 20–22, 2009. The conference brought together scholars and participants from China and the United States to assess plausible Chinese foreign policy trends both in defense and security policy and in economic and trade policy. Select papers from the conference were featured in Asia Policy (July 2010).
We were pleased to have the United States Ambassador to the PRC, The Honorable Jon Huntsman Jr. deliver a special address at the event.
