The Trump administration has imposed restrictions on exports to leading Chinese telecom and semiconductor companies. In addition, the U.S. has taken measures to encourage American companies to diversify their production and supply chains in order to reduce reliance on China. Given the interconnectedness of the global economy, these efforts could pose a challenge to the competitiveness of Chinese tech firms and manufacturers.

Matthew Turpin, Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, will argue that U.S.-China decoupling will set back China’s emergence as a global high-tech leader. Rebecca Fannin, Founder of Silicon Dragon Ventures, will argue that U.S.-China economic decoupling will not set back China’s emergence as a global high-tech leader.
