    What: China’s ambition to “catch up with and surpass” the West in advanced technologies, as well as concerns about how Beijing may deploy or exploit such technologies, have become significant drivers of geopolitical competition. While the United States has maintained a technological edge for decades, China has made major investments and implemented policies that have bolstered its economic growth, military capability, and global influence. Nevertheless, there is significant debate about the gap between China’s technological ambitions and achievements, and the long-term prospects for its development of key technologies. How is China advancing its technology ambitions at home and abroad? How will advanced technologies impact strategic competition between the United States and China, and what role will longstanding U.S. allies play? What policies and investments should the United States pursue with respect to China’s technology ambitions, and to accelerate U.S. and allied innovation?

    On Friday, May 8, Foreign Policy at Brookings will host a multi-panel virtual event to explore these and other questions. This event complements the next installment of papers as part of the Brookings series on “Global China: Assessing China’s Growing Role in the World.” Analysis in this release focuses on technology competition between the United States and China, as well as China’s ambitions and development of 5G wireless technology, artificial intelligence, financial technology, biotechnology, surveillance technologies, technology alliance management, space technology, and regulation of leading U.S. technology companies. also address what he learned at the CFPB and how he would apply those lessons to tackling the COVID-19 economy.
