This is the May 8, 2019 hearing on "China's Growing Influence in Asia and the United States" held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, and Nonproliferation of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Ted Yoho: "In recent years, China has experienced rapid economic growth and is currently the world's second largest economy. While this level of economic success would typically deserve praise, we must not forget that this growth was achieved through predatory practices that have drastically harmed other nations, including the United States. As a preeminent world leader, the United States is now engaged in a great power competition with China as the Chinese Communist Party under Xi Jinping attempts to challenge American influence and erode American security and prosperity. Xi's leadership seeks to advance China's interests, not within the prevailing global order but added expense. For now, it is working. China has no peer competitors along its immediate periphery to be concerned about and plenty of cash to advance its interests in other parts of the world." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Shamila Chaudhary, Daniel Kliman, Peter Mattis, and David Shullman.
