More Turbulence Ahead? U.S.-China Relations After the Midterm Elections
November 08, 2018
10:00 AM—12:00 PM HKT (UTC + 8)
Beijing
Much has changed in the U.S.-China bilateral relationship since Donald Trump’s visit to Beijing last November. The Trump administration has characterized China as a revisionist power, alleged Chinese interference in American democracy, and levied sanctions on the People’s Liberation Army over its purchase of military equipment from Russia. As frictions between the two nations rise, can leaders find ways to resolve security and trade disputes and establish a framework to manage competition in order to avoid zero-sum conflict?
Two days after the U.S. midterm elections, Carnegie–Tsinghua Center Director Paul Haenle moderated a discussion with American and Chinese scholars on the trajectory of the U.S.-China relationship.
This panel was the second of the Carnegie Global Dialogue Series 2018-2019 and cosponsored by the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations.
