China's Foreign Policy: The Xi Era

Isaac Stone Fish, Asia Editor, Foreign Policy

China's Foreign Policy: The Xi Era by The Chicago Council

Since Xi Jinping came to power in 2012, China’s foreign policy has become increasingly proactive. China’s Communist Party chairman has taken more foreign trips than any other Chinese leader in history, embraced a cooperative tone with the United States on issues such as cybersecurity, and offered China’s help as a mediator to bring an end to the war in Syria. Indeed, China appears hungry for geopolitical influence commensurate with its economic might. What are Xi’s foreign policy goals? How do domestic Chinese politics drive those goals? And how does that affect the United States? Join the Council on Global Affairs and Foreign Policy’s Isaac Stone Fish for the latest on China’s grand strategy.
