Dr. Jiang Shares Views on Future US-China Relations at NEWAC Webinar

At a Nebraska World Affairs Council Webinar on October 21, 2020, Maorong Jiang joined political science professor Hannah Kim of the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and shared his views on the future relations between the US and China. Jiang states that both the US and China need to “reset” their relationship, an important and vital step before jumping to the simple assumption that the US and China will have to either reengage or decouple from each other. He suggests that the US must intentionally and purposefully nurture a developing China, with its state-run capitalism and socialist system under authoritarian rule, as a global partner serving US long term strategic objectives. Jiang's talk was part of the research project supported by the grant from the US Department of Homeland Security.
