Competition with China has emerged as a defining challenge for the United States. Asthe Biden administration completes itsfirst year in office, it is an ideal time to take stock of the current U.S. strategy toward China.
To examine this topic, FPRI is hosting a Zoom fireside chat with Laura Rosenberger, a Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for China and Taiwan on the National Security Council at the White House. During this conversation, Laura Rosenberger and FPRI President Carol Rollie Flynn will discuss the main pillars of the current U.S. strategy toward China, progress made in 2021, and priorities moving forward.
After the fireside chat, FPRI's Director of the Asia Program, Jacques deLisle, will moderate a panel discussion with three leading China experts: Dr. Brendan Mulvaney, Karen Sutter, and Anna Puglisi. Each of these experts will offer their assessment of the U.S. approach to China with a special emphasis on the military, economic, and technology domains.
FPRI welcomes audience participation and will feature audience questions during the question-and-answer period. Audience members can submit their questions when completing the sign-up form to register for the event.
This event will also mark the official launch of FPRI's China Center. This new center features a dedicated team of experts who will focus on China’s impact on geoeconomics and great power competition in the Indo-Pacific region and beyond. Throughout the year, the China Center will sponsor a series of events, articles, and reports that examine key dynamics in the Indo-Pacific, analyze their impact on U.S.-China competition, and explore possible policy solutions for U.S. decision-makers. The center has two inaugural research initiatives: The Geoeconomics Initiative and The Technology Initiative. Together, these initiatives will address the complex, often-interlinked economic and technological issues shaping great power competition.
Jacques deLisle - Jacques deLisle is the Director of the Asia Program at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. He is also the Stephen A. Cozen Professor of Law, Professor of Political Science, and Director of the Center for the Study of Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania.
