[WEBCAST] Superpower Showdown with Bob Davis and Lingling Wei

Friday, June 12, 2020 at 11:30 AM - 12:00 AM (EST)
Webcast | Asia Society Policy Institute


Bob Davis is a senior editor at the Wall Street Journal, where he covers economic issues, particularly those related to China, and U.S.-China economic tensions. Davis was posted in Beijing from 2011 to 2014 and published an e-Book with his wife about their experience there, titled Beijing from A-to-Z. He was part of a group of Wall Street Journal reporters that won a 1999 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the Asian and Russian financial crises, and he also won the Overseas Press Club award in 2005 for his Latin American coverage.

Lingling Wei is an award-winning journalist who most recently worked in the Wall Street Journal’s Beijing bureau. She earned a master’s degree in journalism from NYU in 2000 and joined the Journal to cover real estate in 2008.  In 2011, Wei returned to China as a China correspondent for the Journal. Her reporting has since focused on the intersection between Chinese politics and the economy, specifically rising Chinese debt, tightened state control over the economy, and, most recently, the U.S.-China trade war, where her shared bylines with Bob Davis often indicated an article would become a must-read for trade experts and China watchers around the world.

Wendy Cutler is Vice President of ASPI and Managing Director of its Washington, D.C. office. She joined ASPI following nearly three decades as a diplomat and negotiator in the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). Most recently, she served as Acting Deputy U.S. Trade Representative, working on a range of U.S. trade negotiations and initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region. In that capacity she was responsible for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, including the bilateral negotiations with Japan.
