China-U.S. Relations: From Stakeholders to Partners in the Changing World


(Washington D.C.) October 1– President Hu Jintao and President Obama have met twice in 2009, conveying to the world that the United States and China are committed to a positive, cooperative, and comprehensive relationship for the 21st century.
