The Systemic Rival of the XXI Century: What Relationship with China after the Ukraine War?

CHINA WATCHER 2022

ONLINE CONFERENCE | The Systemic Rival of the XXI Century: What Relationship with China after the Ukraine War?

From the Chinese point of view, the war in Ukraine is a proxy confrontation between NATO and Russia. As such, China believes it should minimize its involvement in order to keep the U.S. as engaged on that front as possible. The United States has confirmed the Indo-Pacific and the containment of China as its primary priorities by strengthening the ideological character of the confrontation between democracies and autocracies. Therefore, a long-term face-off is emerging between China and the United States that will define international relations over the next decade. Is this an inevitable path? Are there any pre-defined blocs or alliances? Is the emergence of a non-aligned bloc possible? What role for the economic dimension of this clash?

15.55 – 16.40: PANEL 2 “The economic dimension of strategic competition: decoupling, deglobalisation and the emerging economic framework in the Indo-Pacific”
