US-China Trade Relations
This course offers an economic approach for addressing the US-China trade related issues in an effort to prepare MIIS students for the complex realities of US-China trade and commercial diplomacy. Given the fact that China may overtake the U.S. to become the world’s largest economy in the near future, the practical aim of this course is to prepare MIIS students for navigating the future US-China political and economic environment. This is critical as tensions within their roles as future government and business leaders are sure to be present. As a consequence, students will develop a better understanding of how US-China trade and economic diplomacy has been built based on increasing interdependence of the two large economies, growing bilateral trade, engaging American strategy, the rising power of China and their collective impacts on overall US-China relations.
