With U.S. President Biden in office, all eyes are on his administration’s relationship with Beijing. Will the tough stance of former president Trump on China be continued, or is Washington shifting its policies? And will Biden manage to win over Europe to approach China jointly? Tonight we’ll discuss the current U.S. strategy towards China and its implications for Europe and the East Asian region.
