Tech War 2.0: The Future of the U.S.-China Clash Over Next-Generation Technologies
Wednesday, September 1, 2021
8pm HKT on Zoom
For years, the U.S. and China have been at odds over an array of critical new technologies—from 5G to chips to artificial intelligence. While the Biden administration is still shaping its policy toward China’s tech sector, it’s clear that differences remain. Meanwhile, China and the West are bringing to bear new regulations and controls over big homegrown tech companies. What does the future hold for the U.S. and China when it comes to next-generation tech? Will the Biden White House continue the Trump administration’s hard line on Chinese tech companies? What is the outlook for China’s crackdown on some of its highest-flying tech companies at home? Please join our distinguished panel of tech industry experts for answers to these pressing questions. Moderated by FCC Correspondent Governor Dan Strumpf.
