This event is part of the ISPI's initiative China: the Dragon after the Virus.
The coronavirus pandemic has overturned life as we know it, and the global economy is bound to be one of the major victims. After the 2008-09 global financial crisis, the extraordinary measures put forward by China and the United States had contributed to lifting the global economy. Nowadays, China’s own economy needs to receive a strong boost in order to fulfil the mid- and long-term objectives set out by President Xi Jinping. Beijing’s “Belt and Road Initiative” risks becoming yet another challenge to the country’s recovery, as the pandemic may weaken the foundation of China’s engagement around the world. In sum, what can we expect from China after the coronavirus crisis? To what extent will the country implement the planned recovery measures successfully? Can Beijing return to the same levels of engagement it enjoyed in the past?
The next event China & the US: from Trade War to “Blame Game” will be held on 25 May - 14:30-16:00 CEST.
