Committee to hear evidence on US-China relations
The House of Lords International Relations and Defence Committee will take evidence from experts on US-China relations.
The Committee will ask about the economic relationship between China and the US, concerns about the US-China relationship and US expectations of its allies in the Indo-Pacific.
- What long-term policy towards China can we expect from the Biden Administration?
- Are we witnessing an emergence of a ‘new Cold War’ between Washington and Beijing?
- How much of an impact has the ‘trade war’ with China had on the US? To what extent are the countries economically intertwined?
- To what extent can we talk of a consensus between the Democrats and the Republicans over the US policy towards China?
- How concerned is the US that Chinais ‘catching up’ in technological development, especially in next-generation technology, such as the 5G network and artificial intelligence? What can and should be the US’ response?
- What does the Biden Administration expect from its allies, both in Europe and in the Indo-Pacific, regarding China?
- How, in your opinion, could the UK contribute to regional stability in the Indo-Pacific?
