American influence in global affairs is waning. US president Donald Trump’s isolationist and protectionist “America First” ideology has opened up a global leadership void that China will move into, argues Zhu Yunhan – a professor at National Taiwan University – during a talk given at National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan. The transcript reads like a list of China’s accomplishments; Zhu’s speech would have benefited from additional discussion of what kind of a leader China may become and which areas of global responsibility it may shirk.

  • Why it is important for China to become the new global financial leader and
  • How China is leading global infrastructure construction projects.
