What is your personal opinion about China? Are you concerned about the rise of China? 2. Why does China matter? 3. Is China a world power? What is your view on that issue? 4. Should the U.S. view China as a threat or an opportunity? 5. Will China surpass the U.S. as the world's superpower? 6. From your perspective, what are the implications of China's rising global influence on international relations and geopolitics? 7. How can other countries learn from China's development experience, and what are the potential risks and opportunities of engaging with a rising China? 8. If China invades Taiwan, should the United States go to war to protect Taiwan? Extra questions (if time permits): 1. How might China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) reshape global trade and infrastructure development, and what are the potential benefits and drawbacks? 2. To what extent can China's development model serve as a viable alternative to Western-style democracy and liberal economics for other countries, and what are the potential risks and benefits?
