Virtual:Great Decisions - A discussion group / program

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Great Decisions Book 2020
Chester Library

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs.  The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the DVD, and meeting in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today.  Each year, eight topics are chosen by a panel of experts. This year we tackle critical issues from nuclear security to trade to the future of Europe.

This week's topic:  China's Road into Latin America

As the Trump administration continues to withdraw from the world stage, China is looking to fill the void. How does Latin America fit into China’s “One Belt, One Road” plan? How will the relationship with China affect the region? Should the U.S. be concerned about China’s growing “sphere of influence”?
