China and the U.S.: Where Do We Go From Here? with Dr. Yawei Liu, The Carter Center


While many believe the bilateral relationship between the U.S. and China is “too big to fail,” it has been in a free downward spiral from President Donald Trump to President Joe Biden. The challenges facing the world, including ongoing pandemic mitigation and its economic fallout, climate change, nuclear proliferation, global security, and much more demand the world’s two largest economies to work together. Neither side has found a way to coexist peacefully and competitively.

What does this mean to the business communities on both sides of the ocean? How will it impact global peace and prosperity? Join us for a conversation with Dr. Yawei Liu, Senior Advisor on China at the Carter Center. He’ll discuss this consequential relationship from both the U.S. and Chinese perspective and what can be done to stabilize and improve it.
