Please join us for this East-West Center Distinguished Lecture by Christopher K. Johnson, Senior Adviser and Freeman Chair in Chinese Studies, Center for Strategic and International Studies

At the conclusion of the 19th Party Congress in the fall of 2017, the Chinese Communist Party announced a new "guiding ideology" for steering China's future direction--"Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era." China's astonishing growth over the last few decades in both economic might and international influence represents the most fundamental shift in the global balance of power in more than a century. How the United States--and the rest of the world--adapt to that challenge will fundamentally shape the evolution of the economic, military, and, perhaps, ideational outlines of the global order going forward. This presentation will examine the full scope of China's multifaceted rise, and how the many changes made by President Xi both inside and outside China have brought those dimensions into stark relief. It also will discuss how the policies of the Trump Administration are impacting, and being impacted by, China's ascent to great power status on the world stage, and suggest how investors can best position themselves for success in this era of dynamic change.

Christopher K. Johnson is an accomplished Asian affairs specialist, having spent nearly two decades serving in the U.S. government’s intelligence and foreign affairs communities and has extensive experience analyzing and working in Asia on a diverse set of country-specific and transnational issues. Through-out his career, he has chronicled China’s dynamic political and economic transformation, the development of its robust military modernization program, and its resurgence as a regional and global power. He has frequently advised senior White House, cabinet, congressional, military, and foreign officials on the Chinese leadership and on Beijing’s foreign and security policies.
