China, Taiwan, Hong Kong : United States challenges
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)

Examines the rise of Greater China as a geopolitical and economic center, as well as U.S. foreign policy toward the region.
In the 1990s the region consisting of China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong became a pivotal economic and geopolitical center. China, despite its undemocratic government and poor human rights record, had become the world's fastest growing economy and most populous nation. Across the strait, Taiwan also experienced an economic boom, and was now America's sixth largest trading partner. Hong Kong, a British colony since the 1840s, was poised to return to Chinese control, bringing with it a western style market economy and an expanding democracy. Together, the three nations were increasingly referred to as "Greater China". Is there really such a thing as "Greater China", however, and how should the U.S. conduct its economic and diplomatic policy towards a region on the rise? In this episode host Peter Krogh examines the situation on the ground in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong with Harry Harding, Dean of George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs and specialist on Asian affairs, and James Lilley, former American chief of mission in Taiwan and U.S. ambassador to China.
