Much has been written and said in recent weeks about what to expect from the encounter between Presidents Barack Obama and Xi Jinping at the Sunnylands estate in California. In the wake of the meeting, this session will seek to take a hard look at what was at stake for each leader, what they each achieved, and what it means for the bilateral relationship going forward. Please join us for what promises to be a rich discussion of both the strategic and the practical implications of this important moment in U.S.-China relations.
