Conclave 2023 Discusses The Rise of China Posted on March 18, 2023 News By Akta Yadav 255 Views Conclave 2023:- The last four decades are a witness to the astonishing growth of China from an underdeveloped nation to a potential superpower. However, it seems like China enjoys playing dumb and weak, which is why the world does not know yet the Chinese economy has already surpassed America's, said Senior Fellow for China Strategy at The Heritage Foundation Michael Pillsbury at the India Today Conclave 2023. Michael Pillsbury on US-China politics Amidst the ever-dynamic geopolitical situation, it was interesting to know that the United States had preferred China over India to invest heavily in as well as transfer all scientific findings and technologies to China. This was done with the aim of supporting the development of China. While discussing the US bias towards China at Conclave 2023, Michael Pillsbury stated "Even though we thought the Indian horse would win the race, what happened was that we helped the Chinese horse, which ultimately ends up 4-5 times larger and more technologically advanced than India,". Curiously enough, in spite of the Chinese president’s aggressive approaches, the US investment in China is way higher than in India. Manoj Kewalramani on US-China politics China Studies Fellow at Takshashila Institution Manoj Kewalramani had a different outlook towards the US-China duo. He drew the attention of the Conclave 2023 towards the Belt and Road Initiative as well Beijing's projections of growth at home, indicating that, ” Xi Jinping is no longer downplaying what he believes he wants the world order to be like. But I don't think he today has the capability to achieve those goals of dominance". Along with this, Kewalramani also spoke about Xi Jinping’s dream of achieving global supremacy as well as what is stopping the Chinese president from making it happen. Conclave 2023 also touched upon the topic of the imminent threat Taiwan is facing from China. Pillsbury was of the view that if the US’s positive outlook on the "One China" policy changes, it could be a cause of war for China to attack. On the other hand, Kewalramani said"I don't think it is inevitable at any point of time... It would be extremely foolhardy, particularly after the lessons Xi Jinping is watching Russia learn in Ukraine."
