Hosted by the Government & Regional Affairs Committee

The United States and China are the two major powers in the Asian region, and their relationship has become increasingly competitive in recent years. There has also been increased commentary in the media, in intellectual and policy circles, and in governments that countries in Asia may have to “choose” between their relations with the United States and China. Some of this competitive dynamic is centered here in Southeast Asia. In this special AmCham lecture, Professor David Shambaugh will assess the US-China dynamics and comparative positions in the region.
