Under its Belt and Road Initiative, China has been going all over the world signing business deals with countries to build their infrastructure. The United States has been standing on the sidelines, watching China gain increasing influence and leverage over these countries without doing much to stop it. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss how the US should be doing something similar with green energy to tackle climate change, China setting standards for 5G, the effectiveness of blacklisting Chinese Companies, and as well as other topics. Joining us in this episode is Christopher Balding, a fellow at the Henry Jackson Society and an associate professor at the Fulbright University Vietnam. He was formerly an associate professor at Peking University HSBC School of Business in Shenzhen, China.
