On Thursday, September 3, Mary Kay Magistad will talk about her new podcast with the Global Reporting Centre: On China’s New Silk Road. Reported around the world, the podcast focuses on attitudes toward China’s global ambition, and the impact of China’s investments on the ground. Mary Kay is a former China correspondent for NPR and PRX’s “The World”.
China’s global ambition is hitting headwinds, from the economic fallout of COVID-19, to pushback against coercive diplomacy. How is China’s signature Belt & Road Initiative faring in the midst of this, as a long-term strategy to shift the center of gravity of global trade and power? What might this shifting landscape mean for the United States? How does the impact of China’s infrastructure building on the ground affect U.S. interests and present opportunities for U.S. engagement in offering an alternative?
This program will be moderated by Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director of the Asia Society Center on U.S.-China Relations and Asia Society Northern California Board Member.Buy tickets/get more info now
