This report summarizes the findings of a May 1996 CRS seminar that examined challenges posed for U.S. policy by the rising wealth and power of China, and alternative U.S. strategies to deal with China's rising power. A Clinton administration representative and four nongovernment experts discussed these subjects; together with other seminar participants, they reached general consensus on recommendations favoring a balanced U.S. policy of positive and negative incentives geared toward prolonged interaction with rising Chinese power in the context of careful U.S. leadership attention to nurturing the relative power and influence of the United States in Asian and world affairs.
