National Committee on US-China Relations – Join here for Ray Dalio’s speech (7-8 pm EST)

Our Event on November 10, 2020 at 8-9pm EST:  “Small Nations in US-China Great Power Competition”

US-China relations have become increasingly complex. This relationship has in our times gone through a mutual isolation period to normalization,  and now we are in the phase of competition, or even the so-called “de-coupling.” Let’s hope this phase will also transform, but right now this competition has become real and nations around the world are feeling the effect of that. Therefore, this NCUSCR China Town Hall will look at the critically important topic that how small nations around the world, say from Latin America to Africa to Asia, will be able to or not be able to pursue their foreign and economic policies by engaging autonomously with both the US and China, reminding of Cold War era? How will the United States and China reach out to many nations in aligning their policies that are favorable for their global interests?  And importantly, what to make or not to make of new partnership offers especially from China, and to some extent US, as skepticism is growing out there in the world but the desire to engage is higher? How the new administration’s take will be different, if any, on these matters? Please join us to hear about all these, and ask questions, with our Keynote Speaker Dr. Cynthia Watson who will share her valuable insights on these issues.
     

Speaker : Dr. Cynthia A. Watson, Dean of Academic Affairs, National Defense University, Washington Moderator: Dr. Anil Sigdel, Nepal Matters for America; Nepal Policy Institute
