Joseph Nye of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government draws upon the insights of his recent meetings with China’s future leaders to examine the future of American relations with China. As China has become a more powerful player in the Pacific, how has it projected its strength? How have strategic alliances among its neighbors changed in response to China’s growing economic and military might? What does the Obama administration’s new emphasis on the Pacific mean for the future of American relations with China? Moderated by PRI’s The World’s Lisa Mullins.
