|Abstract:||President Obama’s highly anticipated visit to China November 15−18, 2009 did not produce headline-grabbing commitments by Beijing to reform its currency policy or
increase U.S. imports, among other issues that have fueled the concerns of many Americans about the implications of China’s
rise. But the visit was not the disappointment that quite a few U.S. media outlets portrayed, argues Dr. Kenneth Lieberthal of the Brookings Institution. It produced agreements aimed at building the fundamentals for effective cooperation on climate change over the longer term, he points out. Most important, Lieberthal says, the Obama-Hu conversations moved global
economic, environment, and security-related issues to the center of the U.S.-China relationship.
