Great Decisions: China and America: the New Geopolitical Equation

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Chanhassen Library
Thornton Wilder Meeting Room
Over the past several years, China has implemented an expansive strategy of economic diplomacy in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. Where the United States has taken a step back from multilateral trade agreements and discarded the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), China has made inroads through initiatives like One Belt, One Road and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). What are China’s geopolitical objectives? What do its actions mean for the international balance of power, and how should the United States respond?

Funded by Friends of the Chanhassen Library.
