The EU’s ambitious agenda for regulating digital technology, including a proposed “Transatlantic Trade and Technology Council”, has been matched by re-engagement by the new US administration on issues both of critical technologies as well as trade.
Mutual engagement to forge common standards and facilitate joint investments will be essential for avoiding disparate approaches on a whole range of issues related to the digital economy. This is indeed critical to address dependencies on critical foreign supply chains and ensure rapid economic recovery. Strong transatlantic partnership, moreover, is more vital than ever in addressing China’s rising economic dominance.
• How can transatlantic partnership be strengthened by the EU’s policy of “open strategic autonomy”? • How can the transatlantic partnership effectively address critical tech and trade issues such that both partners achieve their respective digital strategies? • How can industry help bridge investment gaps and create effective roadmaps?
Join us on June 15 to hear the views of experts and policymakers on tech and trade policies that works for the European Union and the transatlantic relations.
The event will be livestreamed on our Facebook page, on our website, on our YouTube channel and Twitter account.
