Event Details

How will the US election on November 3 affect US-China relations? Will a Biden victory mean a return to pre-tariff trade relations, or will the Trumpian intense rivalry between the two superpowers continue to spill over into high-tech trade and investment?


Join us for an in-depth lunch discussion of the US election results and their impact on China.
