Chinese think-tanks have issued a report on the country's ties with the United States, titled "Exploring a New Pathway to a Win-Win Partnership."

Released during a forum co-hosted by the National Institute for Global Strategy at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and the Institute of International and Strategic Studies at Peking University, it details possible changes in domestic and foreign policies on both sides and aims to provide policy makers with a balanced and thorough analysis of the China-US relations.

Fu Ying, principal expert of the National Institute for Global Strategy of the CASS said: "The recent trend in our bilateral relationship is quite clear that as strong as we manage things properly, we handle the problems prudently. We are sure that we can be more in the positive direction. We believe to achieve win-win and mutually beneficial collaboration, what's important is that we respect each other, if we could respect the other side, and carefully listen to what the other side think and why they think the way they do, it's not difficult to face the differences."

Christopher K. Johnson, senior adviser and freeman chair in China Studies of Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS) said: "The consensus of the US group is that the recent meeting between our two presidents in Mar-a-Lago, Florida was a good start. Mutual understanding was deepened, especially on sensitive issues like the DPRK and bilateral trade relationship. It requires bold action and risk taking from both our two countries to achieve the type of win-win result."

On the ties between the two countries, the report says the pair should explore ways to secure investment and trade to safeguard global growth.

President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump agreed to a 100-day plan for trade talks during their meeting in April. That indicated both sides' efforts to solve trade issues.

Wang Jisi, professor from the School of International Studies of Peking University said: "They will focus on some important things like how to reduce the trade deficit on the US side, and also to increase Chinese investment in the US. We have the Belt and Road Initiative to negotiate on, and then I think the two sides will also talk about US participation in the Belt and Road Initiative, that is my hope, and they are working very hard and very practically to solve these problems."
