Abstract of the Speech
Significant differences exist among policy-makers and analysts concerning China's future direction. In this discussion, Professor Tony Saich will focus on three questions. First, what is President Xi Jinping's policy objective and how successful has he been in realizing his program? Second, what is the growth potential of the Chinese economy? And third, based on these analyses what are the differing proposals within the US for dealing with China's future trajectory?
