China's leader Xi Jinping, is seeking to balance confidence and caution as China strides ahead while other countries continue to grapple with the pandemic. "Xi Jinping strikes me as ruthless but cautious in erecting a durable personal legacy," says Dimitar Gueorguiev, assistant professor of political science. In the eyes of China’s leaders, he says, "the response to the coronavirus was really a textbook example to the party of how you could bring things together in a short amount of time and force through a program." Gueorgueiv was quoted in the New York Times article, "'The East Is Rising': Xi Maps Out China’s Post-Covid Ascent."
