Integration or Decoupling: What Lies Ahead?
Thursday, November 12, 4:30-5:45pm PT / 7:30-8:45pm ET via Zoom
With the November elections right around the corner, China has been a central focus of both parties' campaigns. Recent talk of decoupling has raised questions about the likelihood and potential effects of such a possibility. This webinar will discuss what the outcome of the November elections might mean for the future of global trade, investment, and US-China relations against the backdrop of rising nationalism and xenophobia.
