As the parameters of the economic relationship with China continue to be debated and tested, “de-risking” has emerged as the preferred approach for the Biden administration’s international economic strategy. U.S.-China decoupling — a complete disentanglement of the world’s largest economies — threatens an immense toll for economies around the world; however, de-risking promises a focused and targeted effort to ameliorate vulnerabilities in critical sectors while preserving the broad benefits of economic interdependence. Can the Biden administration use de-risking to achieve greater consensus with allies and partners on a China economic strategy?
On October 3, the Center for East Asia Policy Studies and the Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) will host a panel of experts to examine regional perspectives on the opportunities and challenges in crafting a de-risking policy and how China might respond. Panelists will assess areas of overlap and gaps between American objectives and those of other regional actors such as Japan, India, and Vietnam.
