For the week of Aug. 7, 2022:
Six months ago, Xi Jinping hosted Vladimir Putin at the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, which were boycotted by leaders of major western nations due to China’s human rights abuses. They agreed on a “no limits” alliance.
Before the end of February, Putin’s troops invaded Ukraine. Last week, Xi’s troops encircled Taiwan for war games to intimidate the island nation after U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to support President Tsai Ing-wen.
On this edition, host Bob Mackin welcomes back international supply chain expert Glenn Ross of ACC Group to discuss the geopolitical and economic ramifications.
Plus, hear from former Canadian diplomat Charles Burton and Canadian Friends of Hong Kong’s Fenella Sung about Taiwan and the departure of the Xi Jinping’s mouthpiece in Vancouver, Tong Xiaoling.
Also, headlines from the Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest.
