2021年是中美建交42周年。在过去40余年，中美关系时好时坏，但是北京和华盛顿之间盘根错节的接触是全球和平与繁荣的重要支柱。然而，近年来，为应对中国在贸易、科技和全球影响力方面的崛起，美国推出了“重返亚洲”的政策。在过去四年，“重返亚洲”演变成对中国的遏制与脱钩。美国政府高官去年宣布美中接触政策寿终正寝，双边关系出现巨大裂痕。在这一背景之下，中国人民争取和平与裁军协会与美国卡特中心将于1月27日联合主办 “中美接触42年：过去的成就，未来的调整” 线上对话。出席这次对话的中美关系的著名守望人将分享他们对中美过去接触的重要性的感想和如何调整未来两国关系的设想。
2021 marks the 42ndanniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relationship between China and the United States. There have been ups and downs in the bilateral relationship, but the comprehensive engagement between Washington and Beijing in the past four decades has served as an anchor for global peace and prosperity. However, more recently, in response to the rise of China and its perceived aggressive expansion in trade, technology, and global influence, what began as a “pivot” to Asia by the U.S. has increasingly become an effort to contain and decouple from China. Engagement policy was declared dead by top American officials. The bilateral relationship is under significant stress. Against this backdrop, the Chinese People’s Association for Peace and Disarmament (CPAPD) and The Carter Center have decided to organize an online dialogue for prominent Chinese and American experts to reflect on the significance of the past bilateral engagement and how to influence the future realignment of the relationship.
