Senator Max Baucus, possible US ambassador Baucus called a big figure for a big relationship.

Max Baucus, expected to be nominated as the next US ambassador to China, will have to play a balancing act between implementing Washington's policies and addressing Beijing's concerns over its strategic interests, observers said.

Baucus, a long-time Democratic senator who is chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance Cheap Soccer Jerseys , is expected to be nominated by US President Barack Obama to replace Gary Locke, who is leaving office early next year.

The news of Baucus' impending nomination, reported by Politico, came as a surprise to some China watchers, because Baucus' links with China — including his Senate role in handling trade disputes — seem far less obvious than his predecessor's.

The Montana native has served in the Senate since 1978 and has been the chairman of the powerful Finance Committee since 2007. He also heads and serves on several other committees, such as taxation, agriculture Cheap Jerseys China Free Shipping , transportation and infrastructure, and deficit reduction.

Douglas Paal, vice-president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said Baucus would bring to the table years of careful stewardship of the US-China trade relationship.

"He brings serious Senate accomplishments, access to the president and to key senators. That is more than most ambassadors have been able to offer. He is a big figure for a big relationship," Paal said.

Baucus has been a keen advocate for local businesses in Montana, and he has visited China eight times. He hosted trade delegations from China in both Washington and Montana.

Beijing expressed hope on Thursday regarding the possible nomination of Baucus.

The veteran Democrat also led the US effort in the 1990s to establish Permanent Normal Trade Relations between the two countries and to bring China into the World Trade Organization.

But during a trip to China in 2011, he complained about China's currency policy and intellectual property situation, according to a news release from his office.

The Washington Post described Max Baucus as someone who shares the Obama administration's views on how to approach delicate relations Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping , such as currency, intellectual property rights, labor, the environment and human rights.

The new top envoy is also expected to be cautious in public remarks, because "the Sino-US relationship is currently going well, but divergence remains in regard to China's strategic interests", Shi said.

"Baucus should avoid misunderstandings in the future when it comes to China's strategic interests Cheap Jerseys Wholesale , and play a constructive role in developing the Sino-US relationship, not the opposite," Shi said.

Despite conflicting opinions in trade and maritime interests, the countries "have worked in a proactive manner this year to expand common ground and avoid ruining the big picture of bilateral cooperation", said Cui Liru, a senior research fellow of US studies at the China Instit.
