Biden’s first 100 days: All eyes on Beijing
11 mei 2021 | 19:30 - 21:30
With U.S. President Biden in office, all eyes are on his administration’s relationship with Beijing. Will the tough stance of former president Trump on China be continued, or is Washington shifting its policies? And will Biden manage to win over Europe to approach China jointly? De Balie and the LeidenAsiaCentre present the fourth installment of “The many faces of modern China” series, in which we will discuss the current U.S. strategy towards China and its implications for Europe and the East Asian region.
The event will be livestreamed for free via the website of De Balie. You can join the discussion by asking your questions to the speakers via the chat next to the livestream.
It is also possible to buy tickets to be physically present (!) in the audience during the event (depending on Covid regulations).
