China on the World Stage: Climate Change, Regional Blocs and Resource Investment

The world and China’s place in it have transformed over the past year in response to pressure from the most severe global financial crisis in decades. While the economic crisis accelerated China’s emergence as a global superpower, China has yet to fully assess the consequences of its new position on the world stage and the responsibilities that accompany its newfound status.

On November 30, the John L. Thornton China Center at Brookings and the Australian National University co-hosted a discussion on China’s emerging position as a global power. Experts from the United States, Australia and China discussed U.S.-Chinese cooperation on clean energy and climate change, looking toward the Copenhagen Summit and developments in China’s international economic policy.

After the program, panelists took audience questions.
