As you surely noticed, I had to skip the review of the last episodes due my work load. Dean Cheng, a Senior Research Fellow at the Asian Studies Center at the The Davis Institute for National Security and Foreign Policy at The Heritage Foundation gives you in in this episode of Sea Control a brief and concise overview of some current Chinese topics. He explains the protests in Hong Kong and why – most likely – nothing will come out of it. But the Chinese crisis management in Hong Kong is followed very closely by other states like Taiwan, which sees it as an indicator of the Chinas seriousness of the “one country, two systems” approach.

If you like this episode, you should probabily listen to episode 41, too, when Dean Cheng speaks about Chinas worldview.
