Also in this edition of China Geopolitics: the roles Beijing and Hong Kong might play in US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen's plan for a global minimum tax on companies, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's whirlwind tour of the Middle East and China's reaction to "multilateralism" of US President Joe Biden. #scmppodcasts
