These are the July 24, September 5 and December 4, 2018 hearings titled "China Challenge," held before the Senate Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cyber Security Policy of the Committee on Foreign Relations. From the opening statement of Cory Gardner: "Let me welcome you all to the eighth hearing for the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia, The Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy in the 115th Congress. This hearing will be the first hearing in a three-part series of hearings titled 'The China Challenge,' and it will examine how the United States should respond to the challenge of a rising China that seeks to upend and supplant the U.S.-led liberal world order. The Trump administration has been clear on the scope of the problem and gravity of the challenge before us. According to the National Security Strategy, for decades U.S. policy was rooted in the belief that support for China's rise and for its integration into the post-war international order would liberalize China. Contrary to our hopes, China expanded its power at the expense of the sovereignty of others." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dan Blumenthal, Ely Ratner, Oriana Skylar Mastro, Abraham M. Denmark, Scott Busby, Laura Stone, and Gloria Steele.
