As part of CBBC’s new CB Insights series, this member-exclusive event will be addressing Biden’s stance on China. It’s called Beyond 100 Days – Biden and the future of US-China relations
In the final days of the Trump Administration, President Trump took the unprecedented step of declassifying the current US Strategic Framework for the Indo-Pacific some 30 years ahead of schedule. This document provided a unique snapshot of the factors underpinning US foreign policy towards China, including concerns about a changing economic, political, and military balance.
With the change in administration under new President Biden, the question now is, to what extent will America’s approach to China change?
For this member-exclusive event, a panel of experts, including President Obama’s top advisor on the Asia-Pacific, will address the priorities for the incoming President and explore the following questions:
- What is the future of the Trade War?
- How will the Biden Administration achieve a balance between cooperation and competition?
- What are the foreign policy priorities for the new administration as they relate to China and the broader Indo-Pacific region?
- How will the Biden Administration use bilateral agreements (TPP, RECP, etc.) in its engagement with China?
- How will global business be impacted?
Discussing these questions will be:
- Craig Allen, President of the US-China Business Council
- Dr Evan Medeiros, Penner Family Chair in Asian Studies, Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University
- Lingling Wei, Senior China Correspondent at The Wall Street Journal
- Chair: Matthew Rous, Chief Executive, CBBC
The event will be held on 28th April from 15.00–16.00 (BST) and members should register in advance online.
