#70 – Trumped: the Future of China-US Rivalry



SHI Yinhong 时殷弘 Distinguished Professor of International Relations, Renmin University of China




The past decade has seen China rising prominently on the international stage, joining the major power club. At the same time, its rivalry towards the United States of America has become more and more severe, in particular after the elections of President Donald Trump, whose “Make America Great Again” program has directly targeted China’s economy, with the imposition of high tariffs on millions of dollars of Chinese exports to America, with the aim of rebalancing the wide China-US trade surplus.

The temporary trade truce is still ongoing, since President Trump decided not to increase the second round of tariffs to 25% on March 1st, as previously stated, but negotiators on both sides are skeptical about being able to reach an agreement in the next few weeks.


Which are the main elements that characterize the Trump’s administration towards China? What’s the strategic imperative that China should focus on right now for dealing with the trade war in a way not to damage too much its own economic and financial system?


Join our event#70 for a conversation on Sino-American relations with Shi Yinhong, Distinguished Professor of International Relations and Director of the Center on American Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing.
