Concept Note:

The rise of China will undoubtedly be one of the great dramas of the
twenty-first century. China’s extraordinary economic growth and active
diplomacy are already transforming East Asia, and future decades will
see even greater increases in Chinese power and influence. But exactly
how this drama will play out is an open question. Will China overthrow
the existing order or become a part of it? And what, if anything, can
the United States do to maintain its position as China rises?After
achieving steady economic development, China is currently consolidating
its position as a world leader by expanding investment in natural
resources, such as oil and gas, and building alliances through Shanghai
Cooperation etc.In this context, the Sustainable Development Policy
Institute, has organized a special seminar on the said subject to look
more closely into major shifts occurring in the World Politics, role of
China in this regard, and what these shifts entail for developing
countries including Pakistan.
