The George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations, in concert with the Institute for Global Cooperation and Understanding (iGCU) at Peking University, held a U.S.-China Strategic Policy Dialogue on the aftermath of the balloon incident on February 16, 2023. The dialogue brought together prominent scholars and former diplomats from the United States and China for a closed-door discussion on the ramifications of this incident for U.S.-China relations and steps to be taken to prevent further deterioration of the relationship. The dialogue session was the fourth round of the track 2 U.S.-China Strategic Policy Dialogue series, which seeks to facilitate timely and action-focused exchanges between the two countries.
