Event Details

China's emergence as the world's largest manufacturing economy and as the world's largest national market poses direct challenges to American foreign policy. But what are the indirect effects of China's re-centering of Asia through the Belt and Road Initiative? China's neighbors are eager to take advantage of new opportunities, but they do not want to be left alone with China. Join Miller Center senior fellow Harry Harding, C.K.Yen professor of politics Brantly Womack for this timely conversation moderated by Miller Center director and CEO Bill Antholis.
