Sino-American Perceptions

This week on Sinica, Kaiser Kuo is joined by two guests from the Committee of 100, an organization formed over twenty years ago by I.M. Pei and other prominent Chinese-Americans to address issues in the Sino-American relationship. The Committee recently released its fourth in-depth survey, the 2012 US China Public Opinion Perceptions Survey which turns up some surprising findings about changes in how Americans and Chinese perceive each other.

Representing the Committee of 100 to talk about some of the surprises from the recent survey is Angie Tang, the Executive Director of the organization, who has previously served as regional representative for the U.S. Department of Labor in 2001 and who headed up former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuiliani’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and Language Services. Also in our studio is Mercy Kuo, the Committee’s Research Director and author of a book on Chinese foreign policy and the Sino-Soviet Split.
