Fudan University, Shanghai
Professor Shen Dingli returns to the World Affairs Council for an update on China’s emergence as a global power and an assessment of U.S.-Chinese relations. Can China capitalize on the declining cost of energy to address domestic challenges? Will it focus on asserting itself in foreign policy? Are China and the U.S. finding shared interests in managing regional conflicts or global concerns such as climate change and the environment?
