Changes are in the making, from Europe to Iran, from NATO to the WHO, from the Paris climate accord to the Middle East. The new president wants to move rapidly to repair America’s global reputation. But when it comes to China policy, expect him to go slow.

How will the U.S. and PRC relationship evolve with the election of Joe Biden? Both At the very least, both Republicans and Democrats must decide that a new cold war with China is not an option and that cooperation remains essential.
