Today I join a ChinaFile conversation on the implications of the Trans-Pacific Partnership for China, launched by UCSD’s Barry Naughton and Arthur Kroeber of GaveKal Dragonomics, along with Guy de Jonquières. My contribution is here, but the entire discussion is worth a read.

Welcome to Issue 23 of U.S.–China Week. You might have thought you could stop talking about President Xi Jinping’s visit to the United States. In this issue, you can, but first:

The Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy in Beijing hosted former U.S. National Security Council Senior Director for Asia Evan Medeiros this month and just released a podcast, in which Medeiros is interviewed by Carnegie-Tsinghua Director Paul Haenle.
