Dr. Yawei Liu, the Director of the Carter Center China Program, discusses the importance of U.S.-China Perceptions in his own life, as well as introducing a new initiative to help bring the two countries closer.
The initiative will launch a new Carter Center project on U.S.-China relations that seeks to reduce misperceptions in the bilateral relationship held by elites in both countries, promote greater U.S.-China cooperation in the developing world, and nurture a young generation of Americans and Chinese to work together to build a stronger foundation for the world's most important bilateral relationship. These ideas will be shared and discussed with forum participants and help guide the Center's work in China in the coming years. The USCNPM is a result of this effort.
In commemoration of the 36th anniversary of Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping's visit to the United States following the normalization of the relationship between China and the U.S., the U.S.-China Perception Monitor launched a video essay contest on the perceptions Americans and Chinese hold of each other.
This is a selection of the sixteen best entrees, including three third prize winners, two second prize winners, and a first prize winning video.
