Africa in the New Era of U.S.-China Great Power Competition

Chinese President Xi Jinping is widely expected to soon re-emerge on the global stage after a nearly three-year absence. Where is still unknown, but when it does happen it’s going to create a much tenser, more confrontational atmosphere at upcoming summits in Indonesia and Thailand where he’ll sit alongside U.S. President Joe Biden and other Western leaders.

Eurasia Group Senior Analyst Ali Wyne will be closely following Xi’s reemergence. Ali is one of Washington’s foremost observers of the burgeoning Sino-U.S. great power rivalry and the author of a new book on the subject “America’s Great-Power Opportunity: Revitalizing U.S. Foreign Policy to Meet the Challenges of Strategic Competition.”
