US-China Tech Decoupling and Implications for MNCs


Published 30 July 2020

In this webinar, a panel of distinguished speakers deciphered the global impact of US-China tech decoupling and shared their outlook for the future of innovation and technology.

As US-China relations fray, there has been growing pressure by policymakers to splinter the global tech sector. On the one side, Beijing unveiled a US$1.4 trillion plan to reduce its dependence on foreign technology while on the other side, Washington has imposed new sanctions on Chinese tech firms to restrict Chinese access to US technology. 

As strategic competition intensifies between the world's two largest economies, what does the US$200 billion plus annual US-China tech trade environment look like in the future? What are the implications for multinational tech companies with operations in China or rely on China as part of its global tech supply chain? What are the ramifications for tech companies in Hong Kong now that the US has revoked Hong Kong's special trade status?

Speakers included: 

  • Dan Wang, Technology Analyst, Gavekal Dragonomics
  • Alex Capri, Research Fellow, Hinrich Foundation
  • Prof. Toa Charm, Associate Professor of Practice in Management, Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • Moderator: David Chao, Invesco
