Today I went to this IAS event, and it was extremely interesting. I learned more about the US and China relations, and got better insight of how each country perceives one another. There are good things that come out of the US China relationship, such as trade, cooperation on cyber security, and events. There are also bad things within their relationship, such as distrust, suspicion, and threats. China’s perception of the U.S is that they are resistant towards China’s economic advances. The U.S also fears China’s rise; therefore, making efforts to block them. Overall, China is on the rise and the U.S fears this competition.
