An unstable US-China bilateral relationship is roiling markets and taking headlines, and the outcome will do much to shape global economic and trade prospects for the foreseeable future. At the same time however, the pressures on China’s domestic economy have not relented, creating a two-speed economy and a more difficult environment for policy measures.

How is China managing through these internal and external pressures?  What are the possible outcomes of the US-China trade dispute and how would these affect the region’s economy and global ties?

Join Xu Sitao as he shares his views on these key issues affecting China, Australia and the world.
