As Joe Biden becomes president-elect, what is the future trajectory for US-China relations, and how should business navigate this rapidly changing landscape? Hinrich Foundation Research Fellow Stephen Olson will be sharing his views in this Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce webinar.

Hinrich Foundation guests can enjoy the HKGCC member price by entering the EUSCHINA discount code during registration.

Over the past few years, the US-China dispute has focused on not only the trade imbalance between the two countries, but also rivalry over global economic dominance and the fierce competition for technological supremacy

The pandemic, meanwhile, has plunged the world into recession and continues to transform the global economic landscape.

When the uncertainty surrounding the presidential election is over, will there be a change in America's stance and tactics on China? How can the world's two largest economies embrace the new normal of strategic power competition, and contribute to the global economic recovery? For investors and businesspeople, which sectors will be safest to avoid possible disruption in the future?
