By Xie Yi Updated Jul.6

Over the last five decades, Stephen A. Orlins, President of the National Committee on US-China Relations (NCUSCR), has closely observed the dramatic changes in China and the checkered journey of US-China relations. 

Orlins sat down with NewsChina to share his thoughts on what is arguably one of the most important bilateral relationships in the world, as well as talk about his career path and personal journey from a self-described “small potato” to an expert on US-China relations.
