CSIS surveyed the American public and thought leaders in the United States, Asia and Europe on the future of policy towards China. The results point to possible contours of an enduring strategy around international coalition building on the China challenge. Join us for the launch of an interactive website and discussion of the results with CSIS experts. Some of the findings include:
- 54% of the U.S. public names China as the country posing the greatest challenge to the United States—Russia is a distant second at 22%.
- More than two-thirds of thought leaders in the United States, Asia and Europe support banning Huawei and other Chinese firms from their 5G markets, but there is also some interest in continuing trade in telecom components.
- 84% of thought leaders surveyed in Asia and Europe think the United States would prevail in an armed conflict with China in the Western Pacific today, though just 56% think the United States would prevail ten years from now.
- 61% of thought leaders in Asia and Europe say Joe Biden would be better positioned to deal with China.
