The seminar will review history and recent trends in China-US relations and explore the impact of Covid-19 as a global, rather than international, crisis. The speaker will analyse why China and the USA have failed to move towards collaboration to deal with the Covid pandemic and how their bilateral relations have gone through a vicious cycle. He will offer his prognosis of the future directions of this critical relationship this year as well as over the next four years as the USA enters a new political cycle.
