U.S.-China ties to improve under re-elected President Obama: U.S. official, experts


10:46, November 08, 2012

CHICAGO, Nov. 7 (Xinhua) -- As Americans started a new day with a re-elected President Barack Obama, experts in politics, foreign relations, and business in Chicago predict that U.S.-China trade and economic relations will be positive in Obama's second term.

"The good news is that we know what President Obama has stood for in the U.S.-China relationship," Marshall Bouton, president of Chicago Council on Global Affairs, told Xinhua in an interview, regarding the significance of Obama's victory to the U.S.-China relations.

Bouton said that in his first term, President Obama has worked for the improvement of the U.S.-China relations and was not "someone who bashed China on trade issues."

Many China experts have stated that they consider U.S.-China relations to be the defining relationship of the 21st century.

On Monday night, U.S. Ambassador Gary Locke commented in a webcast that the world's two largest economies have a shared interest in working together. He said conflicts between an arising power and an established one was not inevitable and the two countries must forge their relations based on mutual respect and mutual benefit.

Ambassador Locke made the remarks live from Beijing at the 6th CHINA Town Hall, a national day of programming on China, held by the National Committee on U.S. China Relations (NCUSCR).
