With tensions between the U.S. and China at their most challenging in decades, where are areas of visibility for this critically-important bilateral relationship? Will leadership changes—after the PRC’s 20th Party Congress and the U.S.’ midterm elections—lead to increased hostilities and miscommunication or move toward greater understanding and diplomacy? What are the implications for U.S. foreign policy, and what is the outlook domestically?

As Governor of Washington State (the first Chinese American to be elected governor in United States history and the first Asian American governor on the mainland), U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and most recently as America’s envoy to China, Governor Locke has been a leader in the areas of education, employment, trade, health care, human rights, immigration reform, privacy, and the environment. Ambassador Locke currently serves as the President of Bellevue College in Bellevue, Washington.
