For Americans, China is sometimes an intellectual construct, at various times viewed with respect for its economic growth, wariness regarding its international assertiveness, concern over exchange rates and intellectual property rights, or admiration for its culture and its history. In recent years, the news out of China seems disproportionately negative, be it stories concerning the economic slowdown, South China Sea friction, centralization of power under Xi Jinping or a reduced tolerance for open discussion. But regardless of the challenges, the emergence of China might represent potential opportunity for the United States as well.
Join us to hear long-time China expert Ambassador Frank Lavin discuss China today and offer insight as to policies that might help both countries manage their relationship.
