WACNH Live! American Foreign

Policy and China's Great Game

China’s rise to the world’s largest economy cannot be derailed by the United States, but the U.S. will still be a hugely influential actor on the global stage for years to come. America's markets and intellectual capabilities such as technology, research and development, and entrepreneurial sophistication will see to that, but it is also true that China is already the strongest power in the Indo-Pacific, a race that the U.S. has lost. On the other hand, freedom of navigation through the Malacca Strait and in the South China Sea is as important for China as it is for the United States, giving the two great powers no option but to coexist even as they compete. Can the U.S. and China compete, coexist, and avoid sliding into hostilities? This is destined to, and may very well already, be the great game of the 21st Century.

On Tuesday, September 8th at 6pm, join us for our WACNH Live! Fall debut with Foreign Policy Association Fellow, Sarwar Kashmeri, as he lays out his ideas for a fresh American foreign policy to help navigate this new reality. Kashmeri's talk will also be followed by a Q&A.

All questions can be emailed to council@wacnh.org or posted in either of the YouTube or Facebook Live chats before or during the event, so tune in here at wacnh.org and we hope to see you there!

When: Tuesday, September 8th at 6:00 pm

Where: wacnh.org
