U.S.-China Trust Initiative

The U.S.–China Trust Initiative is a unique platform that brings together future leaders from China and the United States to explore the root causes of mistrust between the two countries and to begin to identify ways to develop greater trust in the future. Facilitated by established scholars and experts from both countries, American and Chinese students address these important issues through constructive dialogue. The issue of trust is examined in several key areas, including military, economic, foreign relations, security, business and trade, media, and soft power. By increasing open communication and exchange among the next generation of leaders, the initiative aims to strengthen mutual understanding and develop greater trust.
