As President-elect Obama focuses on the economic crisis during his transition period, he'll soon have to consider US-China relations. With a fast-growing economy and population, China's effect on global issues — energy consumption, the world’s economy and climate change, to name a few — will be profound and long-lasting.
"China is a major player in issues like global climate change, food and product safety issues, proliferation issues and even looking to conflicts in Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America. Wherever the U.S. has been, we now see China becoming more deeply engaged."
