ChinaTalk with George Magnus

During the first ChinaTalk webinar, we will talk with George Magnus, an independent economist and commentator on Chinese affairs, Research Associate at the China Centre, at Oxford University, and at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London.

The conversation will focus on China relations with the United States in the economic and political dimensions. We will discuss the American perception of the Chinese threat, the Belt & Road Initiative (BRI), Chinese ambitions and the global response they elicit, the role and influence of Europe on the rising tensions between the two world economic powers, and the barriers to Chinese growth, such as demography and the middle-income trap.
