When China and the U.S. work together, it can have a global impact, like the historic climate change deal inked last November in Beijing.

As President Xi’s visit to the U.S. continues, both Chinese and U.S. officials see more potential.

Both Beijing and Washington have put a lot of effort into managing their differences lately. More military to military contact has led to a reduction of tensions in the East and South China Seas. Hopes are that this visit could lead to an understanding on the rules of the road in cyberspace and more co-operation on global economic policy.
