MUIC Holds Talk on US-China Trade War

The Social Science Division of Mahidol University International College (MUIC) invited a guest speaker who spoke on the US-China Trade War on September 18, 2019 at the Seminar Room.

In the seminar entitled “US-China: Long Term Crisis or Short Term Conflict?” Prof. Bradley Murg, Director of Global Development Studies, Seattle Pacific University, gave the audience an overview of US-China relations starting with the visit of then-US Pres. Richard Nixon to China in 1972. He then traced the growing relationship between the two countries as it balanced against the Soviet Union during the latter part of the Cold War until the rise of President Xi Jinping turned the erstwhile ally into the US’ leading rival in Asia.

Prof. Bradley Murg outlined possible ways of defusing the tension between the two though he recognized that it will be quite difficult. He also noted potential flashpoints between the US and China in Asia like the South China Sea and Taiwan.

The seminar was organized by Dr. Nigel Gould-Davies of the Social Science Division.
