(ECNS)– The world now is in the toil of profound changes unseen in a century combined with a once-in-a-century pandemic. Grey rhinos and black swans have emerged one after another, flooding the world with uncertainties. Looking into the future, people have expectations and confusion.
However, when the world is itching for cooperation and solidarity, some Western countries put their own interest first by resorting to unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction, advocating decoupling and chain-breaking, thus building high walls around their small bloc.
Is globalization, which improved the lives of billions worldwide, really coming to an end? What is the prospect of Sino-U.S. relations which is key to the world situation? In the latest W.E. Talk, Gal Luft, co-director of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security (IAGS) and also senior adviser for the U.S. Energy Security Council was invited to talk with Di Dongsheng, Professor and deputy dean of the School of International Studies of Renmin University of China and Ding Yifan, former deputy director and senior fellow at the Development Research Center of the State Council.
