Show Notes

On this week’s Asia Unbound podcast, Dr. Qingguo Jia, dean of Peking University’s School of International Studies and member of the Standing Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), offers his take on U.S.-China relations and explains the inner workings of the CPPCC. Jia makes predictions for next week’s Trump-Xi summit in Florida and argues in support of stronger sanctions on North Korea and the value of the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue. Jia also sheds light on Chinese domestic politics, shares his own experience at the annual CPPCC gathering in mid-March, and explains the process by which delegates debate and propose thousands of policy recommendations for the year ahead. Listen below for more of Jia’s insights into Chinese foreign and domestic politics, and his take on what is in store for this fall’s 19th Party Congress and the crucial personnel decisions that accompany it.
