Chinese government officials and reporters attend a press conference at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Beijing, Thursday, March 18, 2021.

WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden is engineering a sharp shift in policy toward China, focused on gathering allies to counter Beijing's coercive diplomacy around the world and ensuring that China does not gain a permanent advantage in critical technologies.

At first glance, it seems to adopt much of the Trump administration's conviction that the world's two biggest powers are veering dangerously toward confrontation, a clear change in tone from the Obama years.

But the emerging strategy more directly repudiates the prevailing view of the last quarter century that deep economic interdependence could be counted on to temper fundamental conflicts on issues like China's military buildup, its territorial ambitions and human rights.
