Columbia Global Centers | Beijing cordially invites you to a provocative online exchange between two leading experts.

This event will happen in Eastern Standard Time.


Event Intro

The world's two largest economies are both partners and rivals, deeply intertwined with each other but also with divergent interests. How will these contradictions resolve themselves in the years and decades following COVID-19? What you'll learn:

  • Is this era of U.S.-China trade relations, and globalization more broadly, ending?
  • Are we entering a period of collaboration or conflict between the two largest economies?
  • How will Xi's China and Trump's America change as they adjust their economies to the virus?

Featured speaker is Shang-Jin Wei, the N.T. Wang Professor of Chinese Business and Economy at Columbia Business School. Moderating will be Neil Irwin, Senior Economics Correspondent for The New York Times and Senior Advisor for the Initiative for Economic Policy at Columbia Business School.

This event is organized by the Chazen Institute for Global Business and the Initiative for Economic Policy.
