In the February 23rd issue of Bejing Review, EWI's Vice President for Strategic Trust-Building and Track 2 Diplomacy David Firestein weighed in on the impact of China's Vice President Xi Jinping's February visit to the United States.

Firestein maintained that the U.S. welcomes China's rise, just as China welcomes the U.S.'s role as a contributor to peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region, saying "I think those basic statements articulated in the joint statement between presidents Obama and Hu a year ago accurately capture the ways the two countries have viewed each other and the possiblities for cooperation."
