This webinar is the first of our series 'Dealing with China on high-tech issues'. The webinar will be streamed live on YouTube.

#1 European, US and Japanese Approaches and Policies

Cooperation or Conflict on tech and data?

China’s growing dominance in the high-tech and digital domains challenges the existing balance of power. More profoundly, it is reshaping the rules of the game of that very system and the standards and norms underpinning it. What are the convergences and divergences in responses of the US, EU and Japan as like-minded partners to China’s rise as a technological power?​​​​​​​
