Synopsis: The Straits Times analyses the latest developments in China in this weekly podcast.

The Straits Times' China bureau chief Tan Dawn Wei chats with Money FM 89.3's Elliott Danker.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and US President Joe Biden could be having a video discussion about global security issues in the next 1 to 3 months. Their dispute over Taiwan continues to get more heated. Domestically, President Xi's economy is dangerously slowing, financing for his Belt and Road Initiative has tanked and his Zero Covid policy is flailing. However, we have not seen any objections within China's leadership to any of his policies.
