2023 Global Conference

The United States and China: Navigating Strategic Competition (Invite only)

Tuesday, May 2, 2023
12:30 PM - 02:00 PM PDT
Beverly Hilton - International Ballroom

The relationship between Beijing and Washington is increasingly competitive, as both nations strive towards achieving different global orders. This competition, driven in part by values and economics, will shape the rest of the 21st century. Yet China and the United States remain economically interdependent for the foreseeable future. This panel will examine the economic and security tensions at the core of the relationship, how decision makers are adapting to this dynamic, and the pursuit of strategic objectives shaped by this competition.
