The Asia-Pacific is at the heart of the global economy as well as international geopolitics, and both the United States and China maintain significant strategic interests in the region that often put them at odds with each other. Yet, consequential flashpoints in the region—from territorial disputes in the East and South China Seas to the unresolved status of Taiwan to the problems on the Korean peninsula—threaten the security and economic interests of both countries, as well as the world at large. The Bush China Foundation seeks to explore and identify ways the United States and China can work together to protect their common interests of peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, to the benefit of both nations and the global community.
