Resolution of the US-China trade conflict suffered a serious setback with the breakdown of bilateral negotiations in early May. Will the upcoming G-20 Summit in Osaka in late June provide an opportunity for Presidents Trump and Xi to re-establish momentum on the path to resolution? Or is the die cast for an escalating trade war to morph into a protracted economic Cold War? What are the implications of the outcome of this pivotal moment for China, the US, and the global economy? Stephen Roach, a Senior Fellow of Yale University's Jackson Institute of Global Affairs, will share his insights into the U.S.-China conflict on July 12.
The language of the event will be English.
