Since 2008, the Sanya Initiative has regularly brought together retired American and Chinese senior generals in order to build stronger military-to-military ties between the U.S. and China. This year the EastWest Institute in partnership with the China Association for International Friendly Contact (CAIFC) will hold the 6th meeting of the U.S.-China Sanya Initiative, which will take place on December 4-7, 2015 in Beijing. The key discussions during the meetings will focus on maritime issues in the South and East Asia seas, operationalizing trust in the U.S.-China relationship and the assesment of Xi Jinping's U.S. visit.
