Stephen Orlins, President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, says the Communist Party of China has shown its adaptability in the changing world.
He said “The CPC has shown itself to be adaptable. That’s the word I would use. And that the communist party in Soviet Union and the communist party in Eastern Europe did not show the adaptability, so they were unable to create an economy that was thriving.”
According to a report published by the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, Chinese investment in acquisitions, new operations, and expansions in the U.S. may reach 30 billion U.S. dollars this year, following a record high of over 15 billion dollars last year.
He said “And I think the investment report that we write is very important, because that’s going to change the U.S.-China relationship. And then the 304,000 students in the United States are going to fundamentally change the relationship, because some will stay and some will go back to China. Whether they stay or they are going to go back, they are going to influence the way Chinese think about Americans, and the way Americans think about china. And fundamentally those two trends, it’s like an enormous tsunami, and that will overwhelm the South China Sea, the trade issues and everything else.”
