Wait and Xi: What China opening means for the world
Thursday, 26 January
The abrupt end of China's Zero Covid policy shocked the world. What do we know about the consequences of this change in tack? Accurate figures from Xi Jinping’s Government are hard to come by and the Chinese people are torn in two directions: with excitement about opening up and fear as Covid rips through the population. Cindy Yu, assistant editor at The Spectator, joins Alex Andreou to find out what the mood is like, and what opening up means for the rest of the world.
“Twenty years ago we were talking about ‘The Chinese Century’. I don’t think China is going to take over the USA at this rate.”
“In terms of Taiwan or Russia, China is going to want to do the stable thing for now.
“All of this will have a positive impact on the world economy because China is so integrated into the world economy.”
