The ongoing global coronavirus pandemic has generated considerable worldwide debate concerning China's global leadership and international contribution. Discussing Benjamin Ho's new book, China's Political Worldview and Chinese Exceptionalism, the event explored how China is currently engaged in a competition with the United States to demonstrate its superiority over the latter.
Dr Ho argues what is at work in this competition is the sense of Chinese exceptionalism, as Beijing claims to be good and better than the US and the West.
