After the beginning of Gaige Kaifang on December 14, 1978, China pivoted towards the second item on the agenda -- the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the U.S. two weeks later on January 1, 1979.
One name needs to be mentioned forty years after China started to dedicate her efforts towards economic growth -- ex-U.S. president Jimmy Carter -- who was last seen at George H.W. Bush's funeral a week ago.
It wasn't Carter's plan to strengthen China on January 1, 1979 as he proceeded to sign the document establishing the bilateral relationship, and he had no idea how such a relationship would fundamentally change the financial landscape of the world forty years on.
In the thick of the subprime economic crisis ten years ago in 2008, Carter visited China at the invitation of China's President Hu Jin-tao. Henry A. Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft, all former national security advisers, and a few others in the entourage, waxed nostalgic about those bygone days before the establishment of bilateral relations -- secret negotiations in Beijing, a Cold War alliance against the former Soviet Union, and the first visit to the United States by Deng Xiaoping, the paramount leader of the Chinese reform effort.
They mentioned some side issues, including tensions over Tibet and Taiwan. But in the end, the American and Chinese leaders who toasted one another in Beijing chose to focus on China’s stunning economic growth and its place in the world in 2008, and how that might be different had relations between Washington and Beijing taken a different turn in 1979.
Carter himself emphasized that there was no more important diplomatic relationship in the world than the one that had grown between the PRC and the US. On that day, Mr. Carter’s speech opened a two-day conference to celebrate the normalization of relations between the United States and China. He reminisced about how Deng had just adopted the new policy of Gaige Kaifang, transforming the Chinese economy into the juggernaut that it was even at that time in 2008.
It cannot be over-emphasized that the American and Chinese officials who negotiated for China’s reentry into the world were all there, sitting at an elongated table in the conference room, with Carter and his wife Rosalyn at the center.
Top Chinese officials included high-level foreign-affairs diplomats such as Qian Qichen,Tang Jiaxuan, and Li Zhaoxing,
During that meeting, Former F.M.Tang distinctively referred to the NATO bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade, Yugoslavia in 1999. and mentioned that both sides needed to properly handle issues that concerned China’s core interests in Taiwan and Tibet so as to safeguard the larger interests of China-U.S. relations.
They discussed how the two nations were becoming ever more closely intertwined -- up to the year 2007 there were 145 pairs of sister cities, 10 percent of undergraduates at Yale University studying Chinese. Former US NSA Brzezinski proposed a list of problems in the world that he said that China could help the US in solving -- the financial crisis, climate change, Iran’s nuclear program, disputes between India and Pakistan, the Israeli-Palestinian imbroglio, etc.
Such a meeting simply couldn't possibly be held in today's political environment. If the daughter of Sisco's CEO were in attendance, she probably would have been arrested in exchange for Meng Wanzhou, the daughter of Huawei's CEO.
