China's Development and US-China Economic Relations

Made possible by a generous gift from an anonymous donor

The US - China relationship is now second to none in importance for international economic relations and policy and accordingly is a major focus of IIEP. The centerpiece of this initiative is our annual Conference on China's Economic Development and U.S.-China Economic Relations (or the G2 at GW), which has become one of the premier events of its type. For the last three conferences (2009, 2010, and 2011) we created a follow-up online "virtual conference volume".

The US - China relationship has become so important that while some talk of the shifting weight in international economic relations from the G7 to the G20, others speak of the emergence of the G2, the "two" being the United States and China. The G2 terminology symbolically represents the near-inevitability that the US-China economic relationship will be a major focal point in international affairs for decades to come. This relationship is in large part shaped by economic development experiences in China. Thus, understanding development within China is a key component of this IIEP initiative.
