The U.S.-China relationship is now second to none in importance for international economic relations and policy and accordingly is a major focus of IIEP. The centerpiece of this initiative is our annual Conference on China's Economic Development and U.S.-China Economic and Political Relations, which has become one of the premier events of its type.

This event was co-sponsored by the Sigur Center for Asian Studies, GW-Center for International Business Education and Research and the GW Confucius Institute.
