Title: The rise of China on the world stage
Moderator: Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
Abstract: Examines the political, economic, and environmental impact of China's rise as a world power.
Description: In a period of just 20 years China burst onto the world stage, transforming itself from an isolationist country with virtually no international trade into the world's third largest trading nation. With this transformation came uncertainty about the role that China, with its formidable economic leverage and population of 1.3 billion, would play in regional and global politics. As China became increasingly assertive in pursuit of its interests in Asia and around the world, policymakers turned their attention to the emerging power and its ambitious agendas. Yet even as China seemed poised to become one of the world's new great powers, questions remained about its ability to maintain such an unprecedented rate of economic growth, particularly in light of developing infrastructure and heavy reliance on government manipulation of monetary and banking policies. Experts also raised concerns about the potential environmental impact of China's sustained economic boom, as well as the consequences for Chinese social order. In this episode, the Foreign Policy Association's World Leadership Forum hosts a panel that examines the diplomatic, economic, and environmental consequences of China's rise as a global power. Featuring Ambassador Julia Chang-Bloch of the U.S.-China Education Trust, former U.S. Ambassador to China James Sasser, MIT Professor Yasheng Huang, Adam Segal of the Council on Foreign Relations, and Congressman Mark Kirk.
