Description

Chinese president Xi Jinping has made it clear: When it comes to big data, advanced weaponry, and other innovations in technology and economic planning, China aims to surpass the United States as the world’s next techonomic superpower. But between its trade war with the United States, its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative, and an array of domestic challenges, are China’s goals outpacing its capacity? Or is China building and investing in strategic partnerships that will push the country toward global dominance? In three "mini-debates," five foreign policy experts examine the following questions: Will the next Silicon Valley be in China? Is the Belt and Road Initiative a trillion-dollar blunder? And will the United States and China both lose the trade war?
