China Garden Restaurant
Arlington, VA

Here at the U.S.-China Policy Foundation (USCPF), we began the month with a dinner to welcome the visiting China Institute for International Strategic Studies (CIISS) delegation. Led by CIISS Vice Chairman Gong Xianfu, the delegation arrived last week as part of the ongoing effort between the U.S. and China to engage in conversation across all realms, including strategic. USCPF invited experts on American military science to exchange views with their CIISS peers on September 1. It was a meeting among “old friends” in the words of one attendee, as such dinners have been organized about once a year. The Foundation is grateful to the military attaché’s office at the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C. for hosting the event. It is precisely these types of events that help USCPF realize its mission of cultivating mutual understanding between the U.S. and China.
