Must The Superpowers Clash? Trade, Trump and the Future of US-China Ties in Asia

Hopes for a truce in the ongoing trade war between the US and China have so far come to nothing. A dispute which began over trade deficits is spreading into new and more difficult areas, from the operation of technology companies like Huawei to the very basis of China's state-led economic model. Economic tensions increasingly spread over into the security sphere too, forcing Asian nations to contemplate an unwelcome choice between the world's two geopolitical superpowers. This panel will discuss whether tensions between Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping can gradually be defused in the run-in to the US election next year, and if not, how Asia should respond.
