Fu Ying, member of the 12th NPC Standing Committee and chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, paid visits to several US congressmen, professors, think tanks, and some media professionals while she was in the US recently. She classifies US views about China into three types in an opinion article which appears on People's Daily Overseas Edition.

First, pessimists. Fu had an intensive conversation with politics Professor Mear-sheimer of Chicago University, who stressed that confrontation between China and the US was inevitable as long as China kept on developing at its current pace. Professor Mear-sheimer thought that China was trying to change the world order to make it compatible with its own interests.

Second, optimists. Most of these optimists are people in finance and technology. Most of them have high expectations about cooperation with China, looking forward to win-win results. They take the view that since the 2008 financial crisis China has contributed more than 30 percent of international economic growth. They note that China's own development and its cooperation with the US are vital to the latter, and to the wider world. If China can successfully modify its economic growth pattern, these optimists believe that there will be tremendous opportunities for international companies and trading countries, and especially for the United States.
