ChinaTalk with Craig Allen

The Donald Trump era in American diplomacy was marked by increasing anti-Chinese rhetoric. China was identified as the ‘major strategic rival’, and the US administration began making active efforts to contain Chinese technological development and global economic influence. The hostilities of the US-China trade war include tariffs, bans on exports of certain goods and supplies, limits on technological and scientific collaboration, moves against Chinese tech giants such as ZTE and Huawei, and threats of decoupling. And yet American companies are far from withdrawing from China. Investments are increasing and decoupling proves not only unfeasible, but potentially highly harmful for the US economy.

In our interview with Craig Allen we will discuss the scale of US economic involvement in China and the impact of the recent hostilities on the business sector. Craig will share with us some of the US-China Business Council recommendations to President Biden, as well as his view of the biggest systemic barriers for American businesses in China. On the political front, we will be asking Craig about the impact of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) on global supply chains and Americans trade interests in Asia, as well as the possibility of a joint, transatlantic front in business dealings with China.

The meeting will be hosted by Associate Professor Marcin Jacoby, Head of the Department of Asian Studies at SWPS University, and Zbigniew Niesobędzki, Ph.D., President of the Polish-Chinese Business Council - a partner of the ChinaTalk series.

ChinaTalk is a series of interviews with leading global experts on China and East Asia, produced jointly by the Polish Chinese Business Council (PCBC) and SWPS University.
