CEIBS 1+1 Zurich - Understanding the Trade Dispute Between the US and China
CEIBS invites you to attend an Executive Seminar by Professor Ding Yuan on February 5 at the CEIBS Zurich Campus.
Despite the fact the “Phase One” trade agreement between the US and China has been signed, it is far from being settled and could be considered a “truce”, rather than “peace”. Globally, long-held beliefs that the world economy was progressing on a path of deepening economic integration have been shattered. It is now more urgent than ever to better understand the geopolitics behind the conflict, as well as the real challenges we are facing.
