In the second half of the latest CSIS podcast (8:00), the Freeman Chair’s Chris Johnson and Scott Kennedy discuss what China’s abolition of presidential term limits means for Xi Jinping and the future of China, the challenges and pressures that come with being president for life, and what the slide from high economic complementarity to friction-filled competition means for U.S.-China relations. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio produced by Yumi Araki.
Christopher K. Johnson is a senior adviser and holds the Freeman Chair in China Studies at CSIS. Prior to joining CSIS, Mr. Johnson worked as a senior China analyst at the Central Intelligence Agency.
