This is a testimony compilation of the September 29, 2015 hearing "Changing Landscape of U.S.-China Relations: What's Next?" held before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of subcommittee chairman Cory Gardner: "First and foremost, we must enhance the capabilities of like-minded partners in the region with regard to maritime security, starting with the effort recently announced by Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter called the 'Southeast Asia Maritime Security Initiative'. And we should never miss an opportunity to reiterate our policy, as stated by Secretary Carter at the Shangri-La Dialogue in Singapore on May 30, 2015: 'The United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows, as U.S. forces do all over the world. America, alongside its allies and partners in the regional architecture, will not be deterred from exercising these rights -- the rights of all nations.' China's behavior in cyberspace has also emerged as a serious threat to U.S national and economic security. Regrettably, well-documented state-sponsored or state-endorsed Chinese activities have not been met with an appropriate response from the United States. Although last year, the Administration announced criminal charges against 5 officials of the People's Liberation Army, clearly that has not been enough to deter further bad behavior from Beijing." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Christopher Johnson and Melanie Hart.
