In the last decade, the PRC has been challenging the USA in multiple sectors. For instance, in the last couple of years the Chinese patents registered annually outnumbered those granted to the USA, the EU, and Japan. In addition, the constant GDP’s growth of the Middle Empire, although now declining compared to that of the early 2010s, made it the second biggest economy in the world. Will the economic power of the PRC be the springboard for a similar growth and power in the military field? Will China become both an economic and military superpower in the 2020s? What have been the main military, technical improvements of the last decade in China? Our panel of distinguished speakers with varied backgrounds will analyze the current situation and foresee the next steps forward.
