Discussion: US military spending

US Secretary of Defense Ash Carter has laid out the US’s plans for 2017, including a doubled budget to fight IS and a quadrupled budget for the European Reassurance Initiative.

Carter also listed the DPRK, Iran and the rise of China in the Asia-Pacific as top threats. How should China navigate relations with the US in the coming years, and what can we expect from this ever-evolving relationship? Join us for a discussion with experts in Beijing and Washington DC.
