The 7th U.S.-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue: Process, Achievements and the Road Ahead

The United States and China are holding the 7th US-China Strategic & Economic Dialogue this June.

Following this year's annual gathering, CSIS will host a discussion featuring three US officials deeply involved in the process. Treasury Deputy Assistant Secretary Robert Dohner helps to guide US policy on economic issues in Asia. Christopher Adams and Susan Thornton are the chief coordinators, respectively, for the economic and strategic tracks of the dialogue.
