FP Virtual Dialogue: Strengthening Economic Competitiveness Through Smart Tech Regulation
The second in a series of dialogues on U.S. tech regulation and geostrategic competition
Economic competitiveness is a key priority for both the Biden administration and legislative efforts on Capitol Hill, including the America COMPETES Act, which aims to support robust innovation in the sciences. Still, other proposed legislation could impact America’s ability to develop and maintain a globally competitive edge in high-tech industries.
How might provisions in the pending tech-focused proposals before Congress affect U.S. manufacturing? What consequences could they create in the development of artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies, as well as the R&D investment for economically competitive technologies like semiconductors, supply chain security, and clean energy?
This Virtual Dialogue is part of Foreign Policy‘s two-part series, produced in partnership with the Computer & Communications Industry Association (CCIA), engaging experts working at the intersection of technology, policy, and geopolitics to discuss the potential implications of proposals in front of Congress. This series will be informed by research from FP Analytics, which elevates the prospective impacts of pending legislation focused on the tech sector.
