Shared Experiences & Perspectives on China
The French-American Foundation welcomed two experts in China-related affairs to offer their perspectives on the country’s economic and social development in the digital era. The discussion took into account the history of China’s domestic and foreign policies and its relationship to France and the United States. The Foundation believes that China plays an essential role in transatlantic affairs, especially in light of recent events such as the escalating trade negotiations with China and the Huawei controversy, and that understanding its relationship to both sides of the Atlantic is necessary to productive dialogue.
