By far the most important aspect of US government policy is foreign policy. The relationship between the U.S. and China is the most important in the world. Whether the two nations can co-exist may be a significant political and economic challenge.
Under President Xi Jinping, China’s policy is changing quickly, with greater consolidation of power and more strategic economic and market reforms. There is a willingness to control state enterprises, but not to reduce the power of the Communist party.
China faces formidable challenges from environmental degradation, internal dissent, and changing demography due to the "one-child per family" policy. Tension between China and the U.S. increases regarding numerous issues such as the instability of North Korea, maritime security in the South China Sea, human rights, data and information theft, cyber-attacks, and trade disagreements.
