Commentaries by Da Wei
- Jan 24 , 2017The new president plans to combine the power of his country and his personal unpredictability to produce fear and anxiety, which he believes will lead to U.S. benefits and gains. This tactic could win in some cases in the short run, but it’s almost doomed strategically. It will not make the U.S. great again.
- Oct 28 , 2016Despite some real tensions, the two countries are using high-level exchanges, close cooperation on global issues and improved ties between their militaries to keep bilateral relations on an even keel.
- Aug 18 , 2015The Sino-American ‘Grand Consensus’ that has benefited both for more than three decades is threatened by new realities and interests in the wake of China’s rise. Both countries must seek effective cooperation, not only to realize mutual benefits, but to jointly play a leadership role for the maintenance and reform of the current international system.
- While controversial issues like cyber-security, military containment, and U.S. arms sales to Taiwan were not touched upon during the latest Xi-Obama meeting, Da Wei argues that the agreements reached were not hollow, and instead set the tone for operationalizing a new style of “U.S.-China major-country relations.”
- Could 2014 be a seminal year in the bilateral relationship between the United States and China? According to Da Wei, 2013 saw a posture of stabilization and growth between the nations and should serve as a future model to drive positive Sino-US relations.
- Jul 22 , 2013This year’s Sino-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue yielded more than one hundred deals, writes Da Wei, and showed signs of accelerated advancement in the bilateral relationship.
