Topic: China’s Belt and Road Initiatives: Aims, Myths and Realities
Sometimes described as the world’s largest infrastructure program, China’s Belt and Road Initiative is the umbrella designation for a variety of projects launched in China over the past seven years. Some see it as the key to China’s economic future, others as a strategic effort to dominate Eurasia and beyond. In this talk, Clayton Dube will examine the forces driving the creation of the initiative, the myths that have arisen around it, and what’s actually happened and is underway. Professor Dube can likewise address contemporary issues facing China-US relationships.
Speaker: Clayton Dube, Ph.D., Executive Director, University of Southern California U.S.-China Institute
