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.

Please join the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center on Friday, September 18, 2020 from 12:30p.m. – 1:30 p.m. EDT for a panel discussion on how digital technologies with shape value chains in the decade post COVID-19. The discussion will specifically focus on digital technologies’ impact on services trade within those global value chains.

Our experts will discuss the necessary domestic reforms in the US and UK and international efforts to benefit from this next wave of technology.
