Since the end of the Obama Administration, the US-China relationship has taken a turn for the worst, with first a tariff war, then the fight over 5G, a Chinese tech, and now the fear that the two countries may actually come to a shooting war over Taiwan. The Biden Administration, while seeking to constrain Russia has made it clear that its primary emphasis is China and that it sees the country as both an economic rival and a military challenger. The talk will discuss how successful the US can be in its efforts to modify Chinese behaviour and the implications for India.
