The Georgetown University Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues is pleased to announce an exciting new podcast series that captures the profound and candid reflections of ambassadors, cabinet secretaries, and senior officials whose actions have shaped and are shaping the course of ties between the United States and China through the many twists and turns in what arguably is the most complex relationship in international diplomacy today. These former officials help explore the negotiating history of every facet of the issues under the initiative: peace and security, business and trade, economic and social development, climate change, and global health. At this critical juncture in history, where both sides are rethinking the trajectory of the bilateral relationship, a project of this nature and scope contributes to mutual understanding and provide ideas and lessons learned to successfully manage U.S.-China ties to advance peace and security in the rapidly evolving international order. Senior Fellow James Green, a longtime China expert who has worked for over two decades in and out of the U.S. government on China, is the host of this podcast series. The initiative is deeply grateful to people who have provided generous support and advice to the podcast project. Please read more on the acknowledgements page.
