As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.

The Atlantic Council invites you to join us for a private, off-the-record roundtable in partnership with SK Group convening public and private sector representatives on Tuesday, May 4 from 9:00 am – 10:30 am.

The conversation will analyze the Biden Administration’s approach to trade and technology during his first 100 days and provide an outlook into future developments as the US navigates strategic economic competition and potential barriers to trade and investment in the Asia-Pacific region. The dialogue will also explore the state of global supply chains, and more particularly how to build regional tech supply chains that leverage alliances to achieve resiliency. The discussion will then turn to potential opportunities for the US to collaborate with allies in the Asia-Pacific on innovative ideas in areas such as AI, energy, and defense and how the US should navigate these partnerships given varied challenges and interests in the region.

Atlantic Council President and CEO Frederick Kempe will provide opening remarks to the conversation moderated by Julie Chon, Senior Advisor at Moore Capital Management and former Senior Advisor to the Chairman of the US Banking Committee (2007-2011). Dr. Robert Dohner, former Deputy Assistant Secretary at the US Department of the Treasury, Julia Friedlander, C. Boyden Gray Senior Fellow and former senior policy advisor at the US Department of the Treasury, Dr. Miyeon Oh, Director of the Asia Security Initiative, and Dr. David Bray, Director of the GeoTech Center and former CIO at the FCC, will provide in-depth insight into these topics before opening the floor to an informal dialogue with participants. We hope you will join us for what promises to be an engaging discussion.

*Please note this event has been rescheduled from its previous date on February 24.
