    Research Fellow, Manohar Parrikar IDSA, Dr. Jagannath Panda's piece 'Beijing is at a Pax Sinica Moment post Covid-19' has been published in The Sunday Guardian on March 29, 2020.

    The piece essentially argues that Chinese foreign policy will continue to witness a zig-zag pattern in the post Covid-19 order. Neither will it show any fragility, nor would it be overtly firm, except towards the US. Xi Jinping’s ‘new era’ foreign policy is based on ‘major power diplomacy’. It would not be an overestimation to foresee that Chinese diplomacy post Covid-19 would treat each and every country, no matter how big or small they are, as major powers, signifying their importance to the world.
