George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations
“No problem of human making is too great to be overcome by human ingenuity, human energy, and the untiring hope of the human spirit.”
— George H. W. Bush
The George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations honors our namesake’s life-long view that the U.S.-China relationship is the most consequential bilateral relationship in the world and that a constructive relationship between the two countries serves a vital interest of the United States, as well as the interests of the entire global community. We seek to advance engagement, education and information-sharing among the U.S. and Chinese policymaking, business and academic communities and are committed to promoting diversity and cross-generational inclusion in foreign policy and to giving back to our communities. The Bush China Foundation’s active, wide-ranging and highly innovative program of activities reflect President Bush’s vision of honest and open dialogue between nations and a safer and more prosperous world for all.
