Event Details

With China-bashing set to heat up in the run-up to the November 2020 election, Donald Trump blaming his every error on China and the Chinese Communist Party fanning the flames of negative sentiment with their actions in Hong Kong and the South China Sea, how much can we expect trade tensions to escalate over the summer?

Join Nick Marro, the Economist Intelligence Unit's Global Trade lead to find out. Nick will join former Beijing Network Director, Rachel Morarjee for an interactive discussion with a small group of Economist Corporate Members and guests. Please turn your microphone and camera on and feel free to ask questions.

Kind regards,

Rachel Morarjee (莫瑞琪)

Director Beijing, Economist Corporate Network
