Editor's note: Throughout 2022, global experts shared a spectrum of knowledge, perspective and outlook on major events with CGTN Opinion. At its close, T-House invited 11 of them to respond to 10 key questions on key topics ranging from the EU energy crisis to Ukraine to China-U.S. ties. We hope that this chat room format will enlighten and inspire.
In less than three days, 2022 will be history. In 2022, the world has witnessed wars, riots and chaos, as well as joy and peace.
2022 also marks the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, and countries are striving for an economic rebound. Sadly, the persistent escalation of the Russia-Ukraine crisis since its outbreak in February has eroded European energy security and triggered a series of secondary calamities.
For China, the 20th CPC National Congress was a pivotal national development milestone. Its continuing modernization set the standard for developing nations, and its achievements in space exploration made worldwide headlines. In China-U.S. relations, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to the Taiwan region, the U.S. chip ban on Chinese firms and Washington's aggressive trade policies have destabilized regional peace and undermined the rules-based order.
To better understand 2022 and forecast 2023, T-House surveyed 11 experts for their opinions on past and future events of global importance. These are their responses:
