The unraveling of the commercial relationship between the U.S. and China was once thought unthinkable, but is now unfolding with relentless speed. Lingling Wei, senior China correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, in conversation with CMC's Minxin Pei, will explore the factors that triggered the U.S.-China economic decoupling, the likely economic and geopolitical impact and consequences, and China’s evolving response to the trade war and the tech war.
Lingling Wei is an award-winning senior China correspondent, who was based in the Wall Street Journal’s Beijing bureau from 2011 until China expelled WSJ reporters in the spring of 2020. Hailing from a farm province in southeastern China, she came of age as a journalist in New York and then returned to China in early 2011 to report on changes in her homeland. She is now based in New York and focuses on the intersection of Chinese politics and the economy.
Ms. Wei's Athenaeum visit is co-sponsored by the Keck Center for International and Strategic Studies at CMC.
