A two-day conference on the most critical bilateral relationship in the global arena

The Trade War that began in 2018 thrust U.S.-China relations onto a rapidly deteriorating spiral. Then the pandemic put China at the center of a global catastrophe. Kinetic warfare made its return to continental Europe and exposed fault lines in global ideological allegiances.

This November, as we face the uncertain winds of policy change alongside two of the most important political events to affect geopolitics — the Midterms in the U.S. and the 20th National People's Congress in China — join us at NEXTChina 2022 alongside experts to discuss what's truly going on, what we can expect going forward, and how to weather what may be a once-in-a-century perfect storm.
