On March 3, Forward Defense senior military fellows US Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Crouch and US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Mulder published an article in Defense News titled “Why Biden’s new China czar requires comprehensive policy authorities.” In the article, LtCol Crouch and Lt Col Mulder argue that the Biden administration’s China czar must serve as the hub for developing comprehensive policy regarding competition and cooperation with China.

Allowing the China czar to play the role of key policy integrator can both drive policy toward clear goals and provide priorities for implementation.
