US-China Relations

What's Next?
US-CHINA relations speakers


In terms of GDP, China and the USA combined, account for 40% of this amount globally.

Trade and diplomatic relations have been strained in recent years but as the Biden Administration is now in place and the world is emerging from Covid 19, the time is right to mend fences and to put the focus back on growth and planning for prosperity.

Several key areas are in particular focus – trade barriers, cybersecurity, territorial disputes, sanctions and human rights.

Our expert speakers below come from different perspectives, each has a  unique viewpoint in this area.

What they all have in common is a shared interest in building better relations between these two great countries, as a rising tide will raise all ships.
