China in Transition

Chinese President Xi Jinping is poised to start his second five-year term when the 19th Party Congress convenes in Beijing this fall. Under him, a new generation of leaders will emerge as China continues to position itself for maximum strategic and economic influence around the globe. As the United States enters an era of “America first,” Beijing is launching projects of sprawling ambition, from investing in infrastructure to expanding its diplomatic relationships around the world. How will the two superpowers settle into a new relationship as President Xi seeks to usher in a new era of globalization with China at its center?
