Event Details

Relations between China and America are looking ever frostier. The tit-for-tat closure of the US consulate in Chengdu just days after the US shuttered the Chinese mission in Houston marks an escalation in the salvos between the two great powers that are now at loggerheads on issues ranging from technology to the origin of the pandemic.

China's relations with Europe also look increasingly strained with China threatening retaliation over Britain's opposition to the Hong Kong security law and German chancellor Angela Merkel under pressure to take a harsher line against China. The future of telecoms giant Huawei in most of Europe is now perilous.

With little prospect of calmer diplomatic waters ahead of the US election in November, what risks should businesses be preparing for and what further diplomatic storms might lie ahead? Join us for a CxO luncheon with David Rennie, Beijing Bureau Chief and Chaguan columnist for The Economist to find out.
