Global MN presents Global Conversations: ‘China and America – The Geopolitical Equation’

April 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

China and America – The Geopolitical Equation
April Global Conversations
In the last 15 years, China has implemented a wide-ranging strategy of economic outreach and expansion of all its national capacities. And, where the U.S. has taken a step back from multilateral trade agreements, China has made inroads through efforts like the Belt and Road Initiative and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.
In April, we’ll continue our yearlong focus on China as we welcome national speaker Jonathan Stromseth, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, to discuss Beijing’s geopolitical objectives and how leadership and political conditions in each society underlie growing Sino-American tensions. Join us for this free event.
