China’s New Resource Diplomacy

I'm participating in the upcoming event China’s New Resource Diplomacy: Challenges for American Foreign Policy at New America Foundation.

Here are the details:
Driven by its huge appetite for energy and other resources, China has dramatically expanded its economic relations with resource-rich economies in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. This expansion of trade and investment has brought with it cries of a new Chinese imperialism in some circles even as it has won praise as a new model for development, in others. Whether a boom or a bane for economic development, China’s expanding economic presence in Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East has created new challenges for American foreign policy.
