Talking Points
Vacation Issue, Summer 2016

 
Dear Zhenying:

Over 330,000 Chinese are studying in the US and on average more than 8,000 Chinese come to the US everyday to study, do business and travel. Many tourist destinations have caught on, beginning with Los Angeles, New York, amusement parks and outlet malls. But the tourists are increasingly visiting a greater variety of places, including national parks.

This week, the Idaho Falls newspaper reported that the flow of Yellowstone-bound Chinese tourists had caused one local hotel to hire a Chinese-speaking receptionist and other businesses were printing information in Chinese. The Billings, Montana paper reported that Yellowstone had recruited three Chinese-speaking rangers to offer guided walks, introductions to the park and more.

Yellowstone and other national parks seek to serve visitors from all over the world. At some of the visitor centers exhibition explanations are available in several languages including Chinese.
By chance, we tied a Montana business training program into a quick visit to the park just last week, encountering more than a few of the visiting Chinese. Many were students in pairs or families, but others were on package tours.
In some of the park's visitor centers you displays include Chinese translations(though they are inexplicably listed as 普通话 rather than 简体字中文)along with translations in Spanish, Japanese, and other languages.
Sadly, we don't know if visiting Chinese are stopping at and asking about the use of the yin-yang symbol at the Billings Depot. The symbol is used because it was the symbol of the Northern Pacific Railroad. Billings is named after Fredrick Billings, who was Northern Pacific's president 1873-1881.
We do know that some of the region's Chinese restaurants are doing a booming business serving hungry tourists, including many arriving on Chinese tour buses.

Chinese food can be found nearly everywhere. It's easily China's most successful export. Please send us photos you take of Chinese restaurants on your travels(outside of China, Hong Kong/Macau, and Taiwan). Include your name, the location of the restaurant and when you visited. We'll compile these on our website and will be happy to credit you. Send your photos to uschina@usc.edu

The China Card:Politics vs. Policy
USC US-China Institute:Talking Points - Summer Vacation Issue
 
Given the importance and complexity of U.S.-China relations, it is not surprising that American policy toward China has become a larger political issue. On Thursday, September 29, we invite you to join us for our daylong conference on the role of China in American politics and whether or not policies toward China have changed or should change. Speakers will include prominent policymakers, public intellectuals, and scholars. They will examine the positions and actions of interest groups, the concerns and impact of allies, and the role of China and topic specialists. We will ask about perceptions of China and the U.S.-China relationship and the realities of that relationship.
USC US-China Institute:Talking Points - Summer Vacation Issue
Topics will include:
  • economic ties, including trade, investment, market access, and participation in international economic institutions
  • environmental worries, including technology, targets, and monitoring
  • security challenges, including regional tensions, weapons proliferation, and alliances
  • politics and law, including how we talk about and to each other about civil liberties and legal procedures
  • the roles of businesses, business groups, civic organizations, research institutions, and varying levels of government in U.S.-China politics and the making of policies 
This conference celebrates the tenth anniversary of the creation of the USC U.S.-China Institute by USC President C.L. "Max" Nikias. Our events frequently sell out, so please register early to save money and to guarantee yourself a place at what is sure to be a compelling discussion.

Events
 
Forty-five years ago today, President Richard Nixon shook the world when he went into the NBC studios in Burbank, California to announce that he was going to China. At the same time, Premier Zhou Enlai announced that Nixon had accepted China's invitation to visit. Nixon ended his announcement by saying:

"I have taken this action because of my profound conviction that all nations will gain from a reduction of tensions and a better relationship between the United States and the People's Republic of China.
 
"It is in this spirit that I will undertake what I deeply hope will become a journey for peace, not just for our generation but for future generations on this earth we share together."

Amb. Liu Jian speaking at the Consulate General of the PRC. July 14, 2016

The July 15, 1971 announcement was celebrated last night in Los Angeles at the Consulate General of the PRC. Ambassador Liu Jian, the consul general and former ambassador to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and William Baribault, president of the Nixon Foundation, spoke of the importance of Nixon's journey and the need for the peoples of the two countries to continue to search for common ground. Edward Nixon, the president's youngest brother, spoke of his brother as a kind of teacher, trying to guide others to new ideas.

The Nixon Foundation and Library currently has an exhibition at South Coast Plaza celebrating not just the historic trip, but the many cultural exchanges it helped launch. A wide variety of mostly Southern California institutions including museums and orchestras are featuring China exhibitions and performances through next year. On October 14, the "New" Nixon Library and Museum opens in Yorba Linda.

Amb. Liu's remarks included one thing not known by most Angelenos, even

H.R. "Bob" Haldeman
those of us who follow Chinese affairs and who have visited the home of the consul general.
The house was once owned by H.R. "Bob" Haldeman, who became Nixon's chief of staff. In Los Angeles he worked for the J. Walter Thompson advertising agency.

In 1994, a year after his father's death, Haldeman's son Peter wrote the essay "Growing Up a Haldeman," which includes this description of what is now the consul general's residence.

"More often than not, we lived in Hancock Park, a lush enclave near downtown regarded by its inhabitants as a "less flashy" alternative to the West Side. The house I remember most vividly was a shingled Colonial with backyard features that I considered providential:a 60-foot pool, an avocado tree big enough to spend the night in and a badminton court that was better for roller-skating."
 
Haldeman's crucial role in the administration, including the trip to China, comes through in observations made by Dwight Chapin in the Assignment:China episode and in the observations of Larry Higby, his assistant who spoke in 2010 at a USCI/Nixon Foundation symposium on "The Inside Story of Richard Nixon's 1972 Journey to China"(web | YouTube).

Haldeman kept a detailed diary during his White House service. In 2015, C-SPAN Radio broadcast Haldeman dictating his China entries. Click here to hear them. During the first entry, Haldeman notes that Secretary of State William Rogers wouldn't be included in the meetings with China's leaders and that in their meetings, Rogers and Michael Green would play "bad cop" to Nixon's "good cop" in discussions regarding Taiwan. Later entries include his observations on what they wanted and got in press coverage and their genuine worries that it was possible the two sides could not settle on a joint communique. Haldeman also took his 8mm film camera along on the trip. Some of his film was included in a film made by the Nixon Library.

Forty-five years ago Nixon and Zhou announced that after two hostile decades that began with US support for the Communist Party's enemy and soon included direct engagement on Korean battlefields, the two sides would meet at the highest level. It was a bold step born out of shared fears that would ultimately yield today's remarkable interconnectedness.
