The Asia Society is generously offering YPFP members 15 free tickets to its event, "Averting a U.S.-China Trade War," a $40 value.
U.S.-China relations, tense at the best of times, are today at a particularly critical juncture. Over the last month, the Trump administration has announced steel and aluminum tariffs, as well as the imposition of tariffs on approximately $50 billion worth of Chinese imports that have set the stage for a potential trade war between the world’s two largest economies. This economic confrontation is taking place at a time when Chinese President Xi Jinping has further consolidated his political power in Beijing and is looking to guide China into becoming the world’s largest economy.
Will current trade tensions boil over to damage bilateral ties as well as the U.S., Chinese, and global economies? Or will both sides engage and find an accommodation? Will China reform and open its economy in a more market-oriented direction for its own objectives and to address U.S. concerns? To answer these pressing questions, the Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) is hosting a panel discussion on China’s economic trajectory and U.S.-China economic relations.
Experts including ASPI Vice President Wendy Cutler will discuss China’s economic reform agenda and how to avert a trade war between the United States and China. ASPI Fellow and Rhodium Group Founding Partner Daniel Rosen will also present the latest quarterly analysis from The China Dashboard [URL: http://chinadashboard.asiasociety.org/china-dashboard/], an interactive web tool created by the Asia Society Policy Institute and the Rhodium Group that tracks China’s economic reforms and their impact on China’s growth potential.
