U.S.-China Relations Year In Review: 2013: The Year of the Snake, Sunnylands, and Suppression (and a Plenum and an ADIZ)
There are no dull years in U.S.-China relations, but 2013 has kept China watchers busier, more concerned, more entertained, and more relevant than most. Please join us for a look at the year that was, and a preview of what 2014 (the Year of the Horse) may have in store for the world's most important bilateral relationship.
There are no dull years in U.S.-China relations, but 2013 has kept China watchers busier, more concerned, more entertained, and more relevant than most. Bo Xilai was finally tried and convicted. Xi Jinping and his fellow leaders cracked down on corruption, press and academic freedoms, and dissent in the leadup to a Third Plenum meeting that may unleash China’s next wave of historic reforms. The United States and China worked to establish a new model for major power relations even as they continued to frustrate each other in the Western Pacific. As the year draws to a close, China’s declaration of an Air Defense Identification Zone in the East China Sea, and America’s refusal to recognize it, will likely dominate Vice President Biden's agenda when he visits China in December.
