China and the US and a new world order — By David Jessop

— By David Jessop –   February 2, 2021

A few days ago, China’s President, Xi Jinping, addressed the opening of this year’s Davos World Economic Forum. His remarks imply that China is positioning itself to be the voice for a new multilateral world order.
