About the Lecture 

The US-China decoupling refers to the process of reducing economic interdependence between the two countries. It is a phenomenon that has been predicted for much of the past decade and is now starting to happen. While US officials prefer to say they’re “derisking” trade with China, the term describes a more targeted approach to the same phenomenon1. The impact of a widening rift between the US and China may lead to further damage2. The economic implications of a further decoupling between the West and China could be far-reaching.

About the Distinguished Panelists 

Professor David Soong
Professor David Soong is currently an associate professor in linguistics at Zunyi Medical University, teaching A General Introduction to China to international students mainly from Asian countries, and translation-related courses to Chinese foreign language learners. My academic focus is on the contrastive study of Chinese and English, aiming to reveal the similarities and dissimilarities between English and Chinese linguistically, culturally, and psychologically, and to disclose the mechanisms causative of these linguistics phenomena.
