The future relationship between China and the United States represents one of the great mega-changes and mega-challenges of our time. The upcoming, late September summit in Washington between President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping will take place during an increasingly tense period for the two countries, amid challenges such as the disputes in the South China Sea, cyber security concerns, and complications surrounding China’s draft Foreign NGO Management Law.
For this special summit preview event, ASPI President Kevin Rudd and a panel of distinguished guests will discuss both challenges and opportunities for the U.S. and China, forecast what may take place at the summit, and consider prospects for the U.S.-China relationship going forward.
The Hon. Kevin Rudd is President of the Asia Society Policy Institute. He served as Australia’s 26th Prime Minister and as Foreign Minister. As Chair of the Independent Commission on Multilateralism, Mr. Rudd is leading a review of the UN system. He is a Distinguished Fellow at Chatham House in London, a Distinguished Statesman with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, and a Distinguished Fellow at the Paulson Institute in Chicago. He is proficient in Mandarin Chinese, serves as a Visiting Professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and co-chairs the China Global Affairs Council of the World Economic Forum.
