With a long-anticipated meeting between President Biden and President Xi at the APEC summit on the horizon, the Quincy Institute and Foreign Policy will host a series of conversations with experts and leaders on the state of U.S.-China relations and potential pathways forward to avoid a confrontation.
What is the fundamental challenge at the heart of the U.S.-China relationship, and how is it evolving over time? What are the broader implications of a deteriorating relationship for the U.S. and global economy? How are strategic investments being utilized by both nations to exert influence, particularly in the Global South, and to what end? Is a direct military conflict between the U.S. and China plausible, and what would be the potential catalysts and ramifications of such a scenario?
The event took place on Thursday, November 9 from 8:30 – 11:45 AM EDT, in-person at Union Station in Washington D.C. View the full livestream of the event below.
