This week sees China celebrate the 40th anniversary of the start of Deng Xiaoping’s landmark economic reforms. While the changes have been one of the biggest game-changers in global affairs in the post-war era, their very success raises today not just key opportunities but also challenges for Beijing.
On the success side of the ledger, China’s rise to greater prominence has been one of the defining features of recent decades. For instance, data from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) since 2014 asserts that China’s economy is now larger than its US counterpart on the basis of purchasing power parity (which makes adjustments for the fact that goods are cheaper in China and other countries relative to the US).

Brandon Marc Higa wears multiple hats in his community. In addition to attending the University of Hawaii at Mānoa William S. Richardson School of Law, Higa works full-time as director for Resource Development, is a model and actor, and plays the clarinet in the Royal Hawaiian Band—and in his free time, he is an avid swimmer.
Whether in his role as director, law student, or pursuing his love of the arts, Higa’s strong community involvement, both personally and professionally, has proven itself to advance the lives of others.
Higa decided to enroll in law school as he wanted to strengthen his advocacy skills and take advantage of this new knowledge to further his commitment to public service. Soon after finishing his 1L year, he was appointed by Hawaii’s governor, David Y. Ige, to serve a two-year term on the University of Hawaii Board of Regents. In his role as Student Regent, Higa advocated for the university’s over 50,0..
