I suggest that more American people visits China and spend time with Chinese people to find out what a kind of nice people we are. I work in a multinational country. Many American colleagues of mine says they love China and they find Chinese people very friendly. American goverment should stop the propaganda of the threat of rising China! We are two of the most influencing powerful countries in the world and we should work together hand in hand to create a harmonious world!
The relations are pretty good. Of course, in the media you can find many articles about two countries' disagreements, but that's normal, as China is challenging USA's position. However, I do not see any possibility for the relations to become bad or even very bad in the nearest future.
