Speaker: J. Stapleton Roy, former Ambassador of the United States to China

Date: April 24, 2012

In an exclusive interview, Ambassador J. Stapleton Roy speaks about China’s increasing influence in international institutions and the idea of international structural change. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US is generally perceived as the sole super power nation. This notion has changed as the rise of many developing countries start to participate more actively in international affairs. He envisions China’s role in selecting heads of IMF and the World Bank will increase.

Ambassador Roy also touches on subjects such as the US’s role of military rebalance in the South East Asia region and reassures that maintaining a healthy stable relationship with China continues to be in the best interest of US.
