As a crisis of global proportions, COVID-19 has the potential to leave a long-lasting impact on international relations, especially between the U.S. and China. Worsening of relations between the U.S. and China has been ongoing for years, but attempts by the American and Chinese governments to blame one another—during a crisis that demands international cooperation—demonstrates further deterioration of the relationship. Meanwhile, the crisis has taken a significant toll on both economies and prompted questions about what lies ahead for supply chains, globalization, and conversations of economic “decoupling” between the U.S. and China. With growing distrust between both national governments, it is worth exploring the role of the private sector going forward as it relates to promoting sensible cooperation, globalization, and decoupling. Finally, the U.S. election will have a significant impact on the future of U.S.-China relations regardless of the outcome. How will U.S. policy shift as a result?
Held in partnership with the China General Chamber of Commerce – USA, this webinar provided a valuable opportunity for experts to weigh in on U.S.-China relations amid the COVID-19 crisis, ongoing trade negotiations, and the upcoming election in the U.S., while tackling international implications as it relates to cooperation, globalization, and “decoupling”.
