About this Event

Join us for an in-conversation with Lowy Institute Senior Fellow Richard McGregor, hosted by Professor Gordon Flake, Chief Executive Officer of the Perth USAsia Centre. Richard McGregor is the author of the latest Lowy Institute Paper published by Penguin Random House Australia, Xi Jinping: The Backlash.

China’s president Xi Jinping has transformed China at home and abroad with a speed and assertiveness that few foresaw when he came to power in 2012. Finally, he is meeting resistance, both at home among disgruntled officials and disillusioned technocrats, and abroad from an emerging group of nations that are pushing back against China’s geopolitical and high-tech expansion. With the United States and China at loggerheads, Richard McGregor outlines Xi’s rise, and the backlash.

Richard McGregor, Lowy Institute Senior Fellow, is a leading expert on China’s political system and Asian geopolitics. He was the Financial Times bureau chief in Beijing and Shanghai between 2000 and 2009, and headed the Washington office for four years from 2011. Prior to joining the FT, he was the chief political correspondent and China and Japan correspondent for The Australian. He is the award-winning author of The Party: The Secret World of China’s Communist Rulers and Asia’s Reckoning: China, Japan and the Fate of US Power in the Pacific Century.
