Event description
Kevin Rudd on the state of the U.S.-China relationship in 2020 and beyond.

About this Event

The past year in the U.S.-China relationship was characterized by a trade war and heightened tensions, with a push in some policy circles toward a wider economic war. With the announcement of a phase one trade deal at the end of 2019, what might 2020 bring in the bilateral relationship?

At this critical juncture, Asia Society Policy Institute President the Honorable Kevin Rudd will lead a conversation focused on the future of the U.S-China relationship. He will address questions such as does a wider economic “decoupling” between the United States and China lie ahead? If so, what might that entail? And what would that mean in the areas of foreign and security policy, as well as for geopolitical and geo-economic stability across the world?

This event also serves at the launch of a collection of Rudd’s 2019 speeches on the bilateral relationship, titled "The Avoidable War: The Case for Managed Strategic Competition".

--Breakfast and registration will begin at 8:00 a.m.--
