The First 100 Days: U.S.-China Relations in the Trump Administration
On January 11, 2016, a staff briefing on The First 100 Days: U.S.-China Relations in the Trump Administration was hosted by NBR and the US-China Business Council (USCBC) in conjunction with the Congressional U.S.-China Working Group at Rayburn House Office Building.
The incoming administration of Donald Trump has signaled potential shifts in policy for the U.S. relationship with China. An understanding of China’s economic, security, and developmental goals is crucial in crafting informed U.S. policy that engages China in the context of the broader geopolitical considerations. China will also adjust its policies to predict and react to the new administration. This briefing provided staffers with an overview of major issues in the U.S.-China relationship and outlined the factors and contours that will shape U.S.-China relations in the first 100 days of the Trump administration.
