The relationship between China and the U.S. is one of the most important relationships in the world today. In recent years, the U.S. and China have expanded their common interests, strengthened the foundation of cooperation, and further developed their relations. In light of these considerations, since 1998, the China Reform Forum in Beijing and The RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, California have jointly organized an annual conference of experts from China and the United States. Each of the six annual conferences held thus far has focused on economic and political-security subjects of mutual concern to China and the United States. The venues of the conferences have alternated between Beijing and Santa Monica, and participants have included policy and business practitioners as well as scholars from both countries. The conferences seek to enhance mutual understanding among scholars and policymakers from China and the United States. This volume contains papers and discussant comments from the 2003 conference.

The conference proceedings described in this report were supported by the China Reform Forum and the RAND Corporation. Publication of these proceedings was supported by RAND Project AIR FORCE, the RAND National Security Research Division, and the RAND Arroyo Center, all federally funded research and development centers funded, respectively, by the United States Air Force; by the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Joint Staff, the unified commands, and the defense agencies; and by the United States Army.

This report is part of the RAND conference proceeding series. RAND conference proceedings present a collection of papers delivered at a conference or a summary of the conference.
