Interview with David Dollar of Brookings on China & global order

CCG | December 09 , 2019

Amidst ongoing China-US trade tensions, to strengthen bilateral academic and cultural exchange, a CCG delegation visited the US in early December 2019.


On December 4, a CCG delegation visited the Brookings Institution in Washington D.C. CCG President Wang Huiyao was interviewed on the podcast “Dollar & Sense” with David Dollar, senior fellow at the John L. Thornton China Center of Brookings Institution and host of the Brookings trade podcast “Dollar & Sense”.


China faces criticism from many who perceive its actions as adversarial to the global economic order. At the same time, globalization helped lift 800 million Chinese out of poverty. What can we glean about Beijing’s approach to that order?

Wang Huiyao, the founder and director of Center for China and Globalization, joins host David Dollar to discuss China’s economic development over recent decades and its evolving role in multilateral organizations like the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and World Trade Organization. Their conversation also touches on Washington’s criticisms of Chinese trade practices today, how they affect the U.S.-China trade war, and the prospects of China making meaningful reforms.
