Nearly two years into the US-China trade dispute, the perception in Washington of the bilateral relationship has deteriorated to the point where US policymakers now openly assert that the two countries are engaged in a “new Cold War.” Prompted by concerns over China’s ambitious industrial policies and steady advancements in its military capabilities, Washington has turned its attention to stemming the transfer of US technology to China, ostensibly to protect national security interests. As many of these technologies flow into sectors that constitute the next wave of commercial opportunity in China, US companies will need to evaluate the trade-off between market opportunity and political risk, and factor US national security considerations into their investment decisions.
Join us for what will be a very interesting discussion with Kyle Sullivan, China Practice Lead of Crumpton Group. Now based in Washington, D.C., Kyle previously spent 12 years in China, advising US companies on market entry, investment policy, and government affairs, including at organizations such as the US-China Business Council and APCO Worldwide.
