Hongying Wang on China's New Economic Diplomacy

Hongying, Associate Professor Political Science, University of Waterloo (Canada)

China recently announced the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), another sign of Beijing’s more activist foreign policy. The United States has expressed concerns, but more than thirty countries already have applied to join the AIIB, including Britain, France, Germany, and South Korea.  What are China’s motives for this and other initiatives in the global financial area? Will these schemes complement or undermine traditional multilateral institutions such as the World Bank?

Professor Wang writes and teaches on international political economy, international business and development, Asian politics, and China and global governance. She holds a BA from Peking University and a PhD from Princeton University, and taught a Syracuse University from 1998 to 2012.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
