The deployment of many technologies such as 5G, artificial intelligence, electric vehicles, and cloud computing is embroiled in multifaceted challenges, ranging from a market shortage of semiconductor chips to politically motivated calls to decouple the sectoral supply chains that bind the United States and China.
The U.S. belief that China poses a grave competitive challenge continues to ripple across this highly sensitive area. For its part, China seeks to lessen its reliance on American chipmakers and software so as to deny the U.S.—and the West overall—the capability to place a chokehold on its technological development. And Canada, which faces its own security challenges in this field, continues to be deeply impacted by the U.S.-China competition.
To explore the evolving dynamics between China, the United States and Canada, ICAS is delighted to jointly host its latest China-U.S.-Canada Trilateral Relations Roundtable Discussion Series on the global race for science and technology innovation amidst East-West tensions.
