The All-China Journalists Association, the Better Hong Kong Foundation and the East-West Center jointly launched the 1st China-United States Journalists Exchange in 2010 to increase and deepen public understanding of the two countries and their relationship. The 2019 China-United States Journalists Exchange is scheduled for August 31 – September 14, 2019. This year marks the 40th anniversary of US-China bilateral relations, 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and 10th anniversary of the China-US Journalists Exchange. The 2019 program will focus on the prospects of business and trade between the world’s two largest economies amid continued escalation of trade friction and economic threats after trade talks concluded with no deal. The reporting tour will provide opportunities for journalists to explore these and other current issues in the important bilateral relationship under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump and President Xi Jinping. Participants will get a firsthand look at a wide range of topics impacting US-China relations including social, economic and political challenges in both countries as well as stability and security in the Asia-Pacific region.

The 2019 Exchange will take six Chinese journalists to the United States and six US journalists to China and Hong Kong to meet with government officials, business leaders, academics, journalists, non-governmental organizations and other members of the Chinese and American communities. Following these group study tours, all of the Chinese and American journalists will meet at East-West Center Washington for a one-day dialogue to share their travel experiences and exchange opinions on how media coverage of US-China issues can be improved in the participants’ respective countries.
