AGI Lecture: How Xi Jinping deals with Trump: A Japanese perspective

Date: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 12:30 - 14:00 Add to Calendar
Venue: Asia Global Institute, MB 328, 3/F Main Building, HKU
Speaker(s): Yoshikazu Kato
Abstract

Xi Jinping’s China has entered a “new era”. As the “core” of the Chinese Communist Party, Xi has removed presidential term limits and explicitly consolidated his power.

How, then, does he use this power, and for what? Tensions between China and the United States – including over the Taiwan straits, the Korean peninsula and the trade relationship – have been escalating since Trump took office. How will Xi Jinping’s global strategy and his political ambitions affect his dealings with Trump? Will Trump’s America undermine or strengthen the legitimacy of the Chinese Communist Party? What path will the competition between “the China Dream” and “America First” take us down? 

In this lecture, Mr. Yoshikazu Kato discusses U.S-China relations under the Xi-Trump leadership, and outlines Japan’s role and its possible strategic choices between the two major powers. 

This lecture is conducted in Putonghua.
