The 9th China-United States Journalists Exchange is scheduled for September 8–21, 2018. With a theme on "Business and Trade: Opportunities and Challenges," the program will provide opportunities for journalists to explore the current issues related to the important bilateral relationship between the world’s two largest economies under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump and President Xi Jinping. With China ranked as America’s largest goods trading partner and America being the top destination for Chinese exports, the immense volume of trade between the two countries generates continued conflicts. Meetings will focus on business and trade relating to current trade friction/imbalance/threats, and trade and investment policies between the two countries.  The journalists will also get a firsthand look at a wide range of topics that include US-China relations; economic growth and challenges in each country; stability and security in the Asia-Pacific region; and current social, cultural and political issues in China and the United States.     

The 2018 Exchange will take six Chinese participants to the United States and six US participants to China and Hong Kong to meet with government officials, business leaders, academics, journalists, non-governmental organizations and other members of the Chinese and American communities. Following these group study tours, all of the Chinese and American journalists will meet at East-West Center Washington for a one-day dialogue to share their travel experiences and exchange opinions on how media coverage of US-China issues can be improved in the participants’ respective countries.
