Economic and Social Development

Economic and Social Development

Poverty reduction is one of the great global success stories of recent decades. But while economic growth has benefited hundreds of millions in Asia, Latin America, and Africa, high unemployment, low incomes, and insufficient social protections have perpetuated dire poverty and deep inequality around the world.

The United States and China bring different histories, interests, and values to common challenges of global economic and social development. Their capacity to work together and with the wider world community will shape the evolution of those challenges.

The initiative addresses these issues through research, teaching, and dialogue among Chinese and U.S. leaders from government, business, and the academy.
