Although relations between the United States and China during the 20th century have varied from respect and praise to disenchantment and censure, the people of both nations have maintained a high regard for one another. America has great respect for China's civilization, history and culture, while China has admired the optimism, growth, and energy of American society.

Allied during the two world wars, the United States and China drifted apart during the Cold War. Since the reestablishment of relations in 1972, disagreements have continued to cause occasional friction. Unfortunately, these disputes have been exacerbated by misunderstandings and misperceptions that stem from different cultural and political histories.


Seeking to Promote Understanding

In response to these misunderstandings, the U.S.-China Policy Foundation (USCPF) was founded in 1995 to ensure the continued improvement of U.S.-China relations.

Although other organizations in the United States strive to further the understanding of China, this is the first public educational organization devoted exclusively to the betterment of U.S.-China policy.

The foundation works closely with scholars, policymakers, and the general public all over the world to achieve a deeper level of communication, understanding, and friendship.
