港媒称，中国驻美大使崔天凯本应在2017年特朗普（Donald Trump）执政初期结束任期，但被要求留任。如今，随着拜登（Joe Biden）上台，有关崔天凯卸任的消息再次引发关注。北京会派谁接替崔天凯也成为焦点。
Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post reported on February 2 that when Beijing is considering who to send to Washington to replace Cui Tiankai, who has long served as ambassador to the United States, it will find someone who can reflect its current diplomatic approach: prudent and understand the United States, but They are firm and tough enough to implement the tougher foreign policy of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Analysts said that at this moment, other desirable qualities the Chinese ambassador needs include diplomatic personality, sense of humor, and a keen understanding of American politics.They added that at a time when the United States is increasingly wary of China, some form of self-deprecation may be more effective than a tough attitude.
Sun Yun added that Ma Zhaoxu is 11 years younger than Cui Tiankai, representing a younger generation. "People will expect different styles, although the theme of the bilateral relationship is unlikely to change."
乔治城大学（Georgetown University）高级研究员、美国驻华大使馆前贸易谈判代表格林（James Green）回忆了2007年和2008年与时任中国外交部政策规划司司长的马朝旭共事的情形。
Green said: "He is a very smart person, but I am shocked by his lack of economics knowledge." He added that Ma Zhaoxu is very dogmatic.
Green believes that the more likely candidate may be China's Vice Foreign Minister Le Yucheng.Le Yucheng has also held positions in the policy planning department, and he seems to have more interpersonal skills.
According to the report, American analysts believe that other possible candidates include Liu Jieyi, director of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council of China, Fu Ying, a former senior Chinese diplomat, director of the Security and Strategic Research Center of Tsinghua University, and Cong Peiwu, Chinese Ambassador to Canada.
Prior to this, some people asked the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs about whether the Chinese ambassador to the United States will change.At the press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China on January 1, a reporter asked: "Ambassador Cui Tiankai has served as Chinese ambassador to the United States for 25 years, and the position of U.S. ambassador to China has been vacant since last year. China is currently rotating its ambassador to the United States. Are there new considerations on this matter?"
At that time, the spokesperson Zhao Lijian responded: “As for whether China will rotate its ambassador to the United States, I have no relevant information to provide you. China’s policy on Sino-US relations is consistent and clear.”
