American Perceptions of China and the Impact on the US-China Relationship

Despite an escalation of trade tensions between the US and China over the past couple of years, survey data had not indicated that the views of average Americans toward China were hardening, but recent findings by the Pew Research Center shows that this may be changing. Their recent report shows that 60 percent of Americans now have an unfavorable view of China, a significant increase from 47 percent in 2018 and the highest level since Pew began collecting survey data on China’s public image.

The US-China Business Council (USCBC) will host Laura Silver, Senior Researcher with the Pew Research Center, to discuss their findings. She will be joined by Ryan Hass, fellow and Michael H. Armacost Chair at the Brookings Institution, who will provide additional perspectives on what increasingly negative American perceptions of China might mean for the people-to-people relationship between the two countries, the broader US-China relationship, and US companies conducting business in China.

This event is for USCBC member companies and invited guests only. Registration is required.
