China, The United states, and Europe: What Triangular Relationship?
Lecture and Dinner Discussion with Brookings Institution Fellow Philippe Le Corre
Weeks after the "Belt and Road" summit organized by the Chinese government in Beijing, with 28 foreign leaders in attendance, Mr. Le Corre will look at China's geoeconomic ambitions in the context of the "New Silk Road", and what impact there could be on the United States. He will also look at the political and economic relationship between China, the U.S. and Europe, as well as the trends and sectors of China's geoeconomic influence. Mr. Le Corre will also discuss the Belt and Road Initiative and try to make sense of China's "economic passion" toward Europe, which has seen a 77 percent increase in Chinese foreign direct investments in 2016.
