How should China prepare for 'US Innovation and Competition Act'?
In a rare show of bipartisanship, the U.S. Senate has just passed the “US Innovation and Competition Act,” a $250 billion dollar bill to boost science and technology research, which has been touted as a key bill to better compete with China. Though it still needs approval in the U.S. House of Representatives, if passed the legislation would be the largest investment in scientific research and technological innovation in generations. How will this impact the US tech industry, trade, and competitiveness with China? What are the spillover effects? And how should China be well-prepared?
To discuss these topics and more, we’ve invited Victor Gao Zhikai, Chair Professor of Soochow University; Jim Rogers, International Investor and Author of A Warning to Japan and Josef Gregory Mahoney, Professor of Politics at East China Normal University.
