Biden’s China strategy

May 30, 2021
BIG IDEA | ‘Senior officials on the foreign policy team have frequently emphasized three “C” words: competition, cooperation, and confrontation.’

‘The Biden administration is still reviewing its strategy and policies toward China, which are expected to be finalized over the summer.’

‘Senior officials on the foreign policy team have frequently emphasized three “C” words: competition, cooperation, and confrontation.’

  • ‘According to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the new administration’s approach to China will be “competitive when it should be, collaborative when it can be, and adversarial when it must be.” ’
  • ‘The Biden administration has reaffirmed the desire for collaboration and cooperation with China in areas that serve American interests, a sharp contrast with the “all- encompassing decoupling” policy toward China in the final year of the Trump administration.’

‘When considering President-elect Biden’s top four priorities, which include combating COVID-19, accelerating economic recovery, ensuring racial equity and social justice, and coordinating on climate change, the Chinese leadership believed that the Biden administration could achieve these goals faster and more effectively through U.S.-China bilateral cooperation.’

  • ‘Chinese senior officials soon realized that the window of opportunity was extremely narrow, if it even existed at all, considering the political and strategic assessments of the Biden administration.'
  • ‘Biden himself has emphasized that “stiff competition” defines U.S.-China relations.’
