On July 1st, the Chinese Community Party celebrates the 100th anniversary of its founding. How far has China progressed over the last century under the leadership of Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao, and since the era of Xi Jinping began in 2012? President Xi has set an ambitious goal to transform China into the modernized socialist state and the world’s most powerful nation in the next 100 years. But a plethora of challenges lies ahead of China’s long-term blueprint. Experts are curious as to how China will handle internal problems such as economic polarization and slowed growth, and external challenges mainly stem from its rivalry with the U.S. Moreover, the S. Korea-China relationship stands at a crossroads as the new Cold War era triggered by the U.S.-China dispute is imminent. We bring in experts to discuss the past 100 years of the CCP and project the outlook of the S. Korea-China ties.
