Dragon on the Rise:
The Implications of China's Ascent to Power
14 July 2009, 2:00 to 5:00
Henry's Grille, 131 Maginhawa St.
Teachers Village, QC
China's reemergence in the world stage in the past decades was met with both excitement, for the opportunity it brings, and apprehension, for the possible threat it poses:
For African leaders, China's economic brawn translated to lucrative investments in Africa and is a welcome source of alternative development financing, free from conditionalities;
For the United States, China is perceived as its most formidable opponent, an outright threat to its superpower status both economically and militarily;
For Southeast Asia, China remains among the top trading partners of all ASEAN countries and is seen as a strategic partner in consolidating regional trade arrangements.
Amid mixed perceptions and pervasive ambivalence, what does China's rise really mean for both the developed and the developing world? Will its development trajectory bring about positive development in Southeast Asia? Will it serve as a counter balance to the declining but still lone superpower, the United States? And, will it use its growing economic and political power to push for a just and equitable global order?
The DRTS TWG on Security and Foreign Policy and TWG on Trade and Industrial Policy cordially invite you to a roundtable discussion as we attempt to seek answers to our most curious questions surrounding China's rise and its impact the world over.
