Executive Roundtable: What China WantsVIEW EVENT DETAILS
[INVITATION ONLY] A Conversation with Dr. Bates Gill, China Scholar and Executive Director of the Asia Society Policy Institute's Center for China Analysis
“Increasingly powerful, prosperous, and authoritarian, China has become a more intense and successful competitor with the world’s established powers – economically, technologically, diplomatically, militarily, and in influencing people’s hearts and minds”, writes Bates Gill in his latest publication on China, Daring to Struggle: China's Global Ambitions Under Xi Jinping. It is for that reason, argues Bates, that a deeper understanding of “what China wants” will remain a matter of great interest to foreign policy practitioners, business leaders, as well as interested publics around the world.
So, what is it that China wants? And how does the country intend to attain its goals? What do Chinese leaders mean when they talk of “the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation”? Which effects is China’s increasingly ambitious foreign policy having on regional security, economic and technological competition and the world order? And how should governments, businesses and societies across the globe manage the complex and multifaceted challenges arising from China’s ambitions?
This June, Bates, who is the first Executive Director of the Asia Society Policy Institute’s Center for China Analysis (CCA), is visiting us in Zurich and will share his insights into his extensive China research, as well the work and goals of the CCA.

About the Center for China Analysis
In October last year, the Asia Society launched its Center for China Analysis (CCA), in the presence of former U.S. National Security Advisor and Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger and The Hon. Dr. Kevin Rudd AC, then President & CEO of the Asia Society and Asia Society Policy Institute, and 26th Prime Minister of Australia. Anchored in the Asia Society Policy Institute, the Center for China Analysis aims to be a global leader for policy-relevant, objective analysis of China’s politics, economy, and society, and its foreign and security policy impact on Asia and the world. Dr. Bates Gill, a renowned American Sinologist, was appointed as the first Executive Director of the Center for China Analysis.
