China – Current Policy

William Duff

Foreign Policy Advisor to the Commander Admiral Aquilino
United States Pacific Fleet

As China is repositioning itself in the world as an economic and military power, its relationships in the region and with the US also are shifting. China seeks political and economic dominance in the region, while working to establish footholds in Africa, and in Southeast Asia. William Duff, Foreign Policy Advisor to Admiral Aquilino, US Pacific Fleet, provided insights into the potential effects of China’s emergence on the States’ security, and described US strategies to maintain peace and stability in the region.

 

China – Economics/Impending Trade Wars

Ira Kasoff, PhD

China and East Asia Foreign Policy
Former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Asia
US Department of Commerce
International Trade Administration

China is the biggest competitive threat to the US and will soon surpass the US as the largest economy in the world, Dr. Kasoff reported. Its “Made in China 2025” initiative seeks to ensure Chinese domination of high-profit, high-technology industries. And, China is willing to employ unscrupulous business practices such as intellectual property theft, industrial espionage, and import/export controls to ensure success. In response to these tactics, the US imposed tariffs on Chinese imports. “We are in the early stages of what could become a full-on trade war,” Dr. Kasoff pointed out, and went on to examine possible scenarios in depth.
