The U.S. and China: Prospects for Trade and Security Relations

March 29 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

  • Sumo

Early in 2018, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission published a report which noted that the U.S. trade deficit in goods with China totaled $35.4 billion in November 2017, its highest monthly level in the past two years. The trade deficit with China is the United States’ largest in the world. Two days later, a report by the L.A. Times cited numerous experts who forecast a tense year ahead in U.S.-China trade relations. At the same time, regional issues – notably on the Korean peninsula – remain pressing on both countries’ national security agendas.

In December 2017, the White House released its National Security Strategy, which asserted that China challenges “American power, influence, and interests, attempting to erode American security and prosperity” and is set on a path that makes economies less free and fair.

Against a backdrop that includes nuclear threats between North Korea and the United States, an uncertain future in multilateral trade agreements around the globe, and critical midterm elections in the United States, what lies ahead in the U.S.-China relationship?

The Columbus Council on World Affairs invites you to join us on March 29 for a dialogue on these and related issues with the following distinguished speaker:

David M. Lampton, Hyman Professor and Director of China Studies at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies
