In this edition of Wilson Center NOW we speak with the Wilson Center’s Robert Daly on the latest in US-China relations after the signing of a “phase one” trade deal between the two nations.  Daly also discusses the implications of Taiwan’s reelection of President Tsai Ing-wen, who received the highest vote share by a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate in a presidential election.

Guest

Robert Daly, the Director of the Wilson Center’s Kissinger Institute on China and the United States, has compiled an unusually diverse portfolio of high-level work: He has served as a U.S. diplomat in Beijing; as an interpreter for Chinese and U.S. leaders, including President Carter and Secretary of State Kissinger; as head of China programs at Johns Hopkins, Syracuse, and the University of Maryland; and as a producer of Chinese-language versions of Sesame Street. Recognized East and West as a leading authority on Sino-U.S. relations, he has testified before Congress, lectured widely in both countries, and regularly offers analysis for top media outlets.
