Global Tipping Points:
The US, China, and Their Global
On Wednesday, March 24th at 6pm, join us for the first installment of our Spring Global Tipping Points speaker series, The US, China, and Their Global Strategic Competition! Tune in as Bonnie Glaser, senior adviser for Asia and the director of the China Power Project at the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), discusses the U.S.-Chinese strategic competition on the global stage to wield influence over systems, countries, and more. From the US's interest in continuing the liberal world order, to the Belt and Road Initiative, the South China Sea, vaccine diplomacy, there are many areas where these two countries will compete. Should the US allow China to be the regional hegemon? Does China have aims of taking over the mantle of global leadership? Glaser will shed light on these issues and questions during this intriguing event.
Following Glaser's opening remarks, a moderated Question and Answer session will be held. All questions can be emailed to email@example.com, posted in either of the YouTube or Facebook Live chats, or the messenger app on our website. Tune in to the Council website for this virtual event at wacnh.org and we hope to see you there!
When: Wednesday, March 24th from 6 - 7pm
