The US-China relation has been in turmoil as of recent. The trade war gave way to the US-China Phase One Trade Deal which has helped accelerate some opening in the financial services sector. However, as the relationship is further subjected to a lot of strain, doubts remain in the horizon about what fruits will bear this tension and what impact will the financial services sector take. This event tries to tackle this and much more, explaining in detail possible scenarios that we need to consider and be ready for. To present a detailed picture of the situation we will count with the expertise of Michael Hirson who leads Eurasia's Group's coverage of China.
