China-US Rivalry and Implications for China’s Grand Strategy in a New Era


About the Webinar

China-US rivalry started from the Global Financial Crisis in 2008 and has escalated dramatically with new dynamics in the domestic and international orientations of China since 2012 and the United States since 2016. This rivalry has intensified and become virtually comprehensive, covering the strategic, economic, political/ideological fronts and impacting on their relationship with the rest of the world, especially the Asia-Pacific that includes Northeast and Southeast Asia. America’s antagonism towards China has been further aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic, while China’s overall situation has definitely not become much more advantageous with its triumph over the epidemic at home. With complications caused by the pandemic, Beijing’s relations with the outside world could face additional uncertainties, increasing the possibility of an adjustment of its grand strategy in a new era.
