Project Description

This position is located is located in the Office of the Under Secretary for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment (E). This position is for a Virtual Intern to work on U.S. and China Economic policy issues and Covid-19 related matters.

China has challenged the United States’ influence abroad through initiatives such as the One Belt One Road, investments by Chinese banks, and the implementation of critical network infrastructures, such as 5G. This soft-power
grab by China has enabled the regime to root itself deep within East Asia, Africa, and Europe. With the fallout of COVID-19, it appears the pendulum may swing due to increased skepticism in the CCP and the prudence outsourcing manufacturing across the globe. These events will allow the United States to be more aggressive with the regime and better protect its interests at home and abroad. The United States should combat Chinese economic aggression, especially in the wake of COVID-19, by enhancing our defense against intellectual theft, contesting unfair
trade practices, and limiting our dependence on Chinese production.
