Hosted by renowned journalist Bob Schieffer, the series features panel discussions on timely topics of global relevance with policy experts, journalists, public officials, and lawmakers.
This installment tackles a question on the minds of policy experts and economists around the globe: what does the rise of China mean for the rest of the world? Panelists will discuss how China has changed under Xi Jinping’s leadership and what the country’s technological supremacy in a number of areas portends.

Joining Bob Schieffer will be Michael Collins, CIA Deputy Assistant Director, East Asia and Pacific Mission Center, and Margaret Brennan, moderator of “Face the Nation” on CBS. CSIS experts Christopher K. Johnson, Senior Adviser and Freeman Chair in China Studies, and Victor Cha, Senior Adviser and Korea Chair, will also take part in the panel.

The event will take place from 5:00-6:30 at the CSIS headquarters and will be livestreamed. A reception will precede the event from 5:00 to 5:30.

The Schieffer Series, supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF), is organized through a collaboration between CSIS and Texas Christian University’s Bob Schieffer College of Communication. It has shed light on current events for over a decade.
