Dr Geoff Raby’s new book China’s Grand Strategy and Australia’s Future in the New Global Order is released at a time when the debate on China has become highly polarised.

This conversation will explore possible scenarios for bilateral relations with China over the next couple of years with and without engagement. While the decline of the relationship over the past three years has been well documented, many options for the future remain to be considered. Speakers include Michael Smith, China correspondent for the Australian Financial Review, and Dr Geoff Raby, Director of Geoff Raby Associates and former ambassador to China (2007-2011).
