Pacific Forum, in collaboration with the Naval Postgraduate School and support from the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency, hosted the fifth US-China Strategic Dialogue on May 2-4, 2010 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Seventeen Young Leaders from China, the US, and other countries attended to observe the conference. This gave them the opportunity to interact with senior counterparts on the sidelines, during breaks, and group discussions. Young Leaders joined government and academic participants during a breakout session to discuss the meanings and contexts of terms provided in the agenda. To reduce misperceptions and gain a better understanding of China‟s and US policies arms control, disarmament and nuclear strategies, Young Leaders held a separate roundtable session after the conference.
