Would China be an even greater competitive threat to the U.S. were it to become a multi-party democracy?
Lois Meyer
How are the U.S. government, the World Bank, and the IMF responding to this new China reality, if at all? How do Trump’s actions re China relate to what you have presented?
Brian Goldbeck
Should America fear China’s alternative to the TPP (Transpacific Partnership), the the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), given the U.S. is absent from both?
Herb Thomas
Canada, particularly Vancouver, is an established destination for people emigrating from Hong Kong.

An interesting novel about China and the South China Sea is "Shattered Trident," (published 2013) A good summer read. Quite spot-on given China's "island building" there in recent years. https://amzn.to/2YNnuhm

During the recent US financial crisis, China was a profit center for many US firms invested there.
Herb Thomas
Is it possible to square the Belt and Road Initiative with steps that will be necessary to control climate change? The Belt and Road is largely hard infrastructure, not green infrastructure. Combating climate change, incidentally, offers excellent opportunities for U.S.-Chinese cooperation.
On behalf of the World Affairs Council of Albuquerque, many thanks for making this presentation.
Herb Thomas
Thanks very much, everyone!
