Xi Jinping's New Era for China: Public Address by Rowan Callick
Speakers Rowan Callick
ASPI warmly invites you to attend a public address from Mr Rowan Callick, author, columnist and former China correspondent for The Australian and The Australian Financial Review. Mr Callick will be speaking on President Xi Jingping’s New Era for China.
Donald Trump has captured all the headlines, but Xi Jinping is at the same time succeeding relentlessly in realising the New Era he has proclaimed for China - restructuring its party and governance, intensifying domestic control, and now ambitiously deploying its economic heft to gain international influence and to transform global institutions to better serve its own goals and worldview.
In his public address, Mr Callick will discuss how Xi Jingping is seeking to entrench his legitimacy as unchallengeable ruler for the next decade or more, by leading the People's Republic into international leadership, with its governance becoming a global model.
The public address by Mr Callick will be followed by a moderated Q&A with the audience, with a drinks and canape reception concluding the event.
