China's economic boom and America's political and economic paralysis have some predicting that the US is on the slide and that this will be the Chinese century — yet NZ is dependent in different ways on both, so what will it mean for us? Dr Dan Twining is a former Foreign Policy Advisor to Senator John McCain, and an expert on Asia's political and economic relationships. Dan is in NZ speaking about US policy and ongoing US engagement in the Asia Pacific - China's rise and the "return" of Asia, plus Asia's economic/political future and the implications for New Zealand.
