Amidst increasing tensions, the world order is being reshaped in 2019. There is an array of possibilities for the future trends of Sino-American relations and global conflict. At the advent of the new decade, we are caught in the midst of rapid economic transformation. The technological revolution-including advancements in artificial intelligence, big data, quantum information, and biotechnology-will continue bringing innovations across facets of society. As these changes unfurl, is the global economy moving toward cooperation or competition?

Forty years after Chinese economic reforms opened up the country, we have reached a crossroads where history is crucial. Choices are not only about the development of each individual country, but they also relate to the prosperity and stability of the world as a whole. The laws of history and nature are omnipresent. As President Xi Jinping once stated, "Only with deep roots can a tree yield rich fruit, and only filled with oil can a lamp burn brightly." Only on the basis of communication, industry, and commerce, joint development and collaboration can Sino-American relations be improved.
