The world has become a global economy. This has facilitated the need for countries to interact from a personal level. The desire to interact is facilitated by the fact that countries have the same desire to progress economically and socially hence the emergence of the need for countries to formulate favorable foreign policies (Toornike, 2009). Foreign policies are guidelines and plans that are put in place by policy makers to guide the nation's behavior while interacting with other nations and organizations in the global scene. Foreign policies have the mandate to protect the nation's interests and rights. All countries at some point in time come up with their foreign policies, and the United States of America has not lagged behind in this trend. The Foreign policy of the United States lays down the protocol that the United States interacts with other nations and the standards they have set to get to the goals of all the stakeholders and involved parties from the individual citizens, corporations and organizations. The foreign policy that I chose in this context is the relationship between the United States and China.

Policy makers of foreign policies have an obligation to given steps to come up with the policies. For example, they must first set an agenda that outlines the problem or issue that facilitates the need for a given foreign policy. Formulation is another step, and it involves debating on the creation of different policies to agree on which one should be chosen for implementation (Toornike, 2009). After that, the policy makers adopt the most suitable policy. The implementation and evaluation stages are the final steps. The latter involves analyzing of the success or failure of the policies. Gathering and analyzing information in the evaluation stage is crucial since the policymakers can know the mistakes they made and hence they could avoid committing the same mistakes in the future. As stated earlier, an example of the United States foreign policy that I am going to focus on is the Sino-US relationship.

[...] The United States liaison with Japan has not augured well with China, and this has been a constant source of tension between them. Therefore, the United States must agree that their Cold War and post World War 2 alliance system has some negative impacts in the region and should be withdrawn. Furthermore, the United States should stay out of the territorial disputes facing China and its neighbors as its involvement causes more harm than good. Another point is that for a relationship to work, America should stop selling arms to Taiwan, as this has been the cause of the drift between the two nations 2013). [...]

[...] Vice president Joe Biden also hailed the development that China is undergoing and asserted that it was indeed the first step towards cooperation between America and China towards solving existing and emerging global concerns 2013). They need to maintain this relationship since any disagreement or fluctuations can affect the economies of both nations since most companies that are in China are multinational corporations. Furthermore, the citizens in both countries now understand the importance of international relations and coexistence thus, they continue to pressure the government to honor these policies. This will ensure that with peaceful coexistence the people can get opportunities to work in the two countries and hence enabling the mobility of labor. [...]

[...] Analysts are always amazed at the relationship between the United States and China. Although there are forces that are trying to push the two nations towards a conflict, they must try to overcome it. However, the analysts agree on one issue that the two nations are friends not foes in fact they are better when they put their rivalry aside and focus on economic growth and other issues of international concern. The supremacy battle between the two nations is inevitable since they both want to prove their abilities to the world. [...]

[...] This relationship has further been affected by thriving competition regarding the superiority between the two countries. America continues to view China as a threat to its dominance 2013). This is because China is emerging as a force to reckon in terms of economic growth. Hence, China should focus on building or creating its turf as the rising power and leave the turfs of the United States as the dominant power in order to promote peace and continued coexistence between the countries.
