PNTR and the Future of U.S.-China Relations
About This Event

Senator Max Baucus (D-Mont.) was the leader in the Senate throughout the 1990s in promoting annual extension of unconditional Most Favored Nation status for the People’s Republic of China. This year, he is leading the fight to grant China permanent Normal Trade Relations (PNTR) status following the bilateral agreement signed in November between our two countries. The House of Representatives will vote on that issue in May and the Senate in June. At this event, Senator Baucus will discuss the politics and prospects of the PNTR vote and the implications for relations among the United States, the People’s Republic of China, and Taiwan.
