Obama administration off to rocky start with China

There have been signs of tension between the U.S. and China recently. The U.S. Treasury Secretary-designate¬†Tim Geithner accused the Chinese of manipulating their currency, and the Chinese censored President Barack Obama’s inauguration address.

However, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton might make her first overseas trip to Asia, including China.

Orville Schell, the director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations at the Asia Society, joins Martin Savidge to discuss the importance of bilateral relations with China, areas of cooperation between the countries and Clinton’s potential trip.
