The Quest for Technology Supremacy: Are the U.S. and China Headed for a Great Tech Divide? @ schwarzescafé, Löwenbräukunst, 1st floor
Nov 19 @ 17:00 – 19:30

We are more than a year into the «trade war» between the U.S. and China, and there is little anyone can agree on –except for the fact that this isn’t really about trade anymore (and perhaps never has been). What this is really about is technology.

Take Huawei for example: the Chinese giant recently found itself at peril of losing its U.S.-based suppliers, and is still battling to keep large contracts. The spat shone a spotlight on what some have called an emerging «tech cold war»: If countries have to choose sides when it comes to technology providers, are we heading towards a world that is essentially split in two by tech?

Where do we stand in this global race for technology domination? Is a divide inevitable? And what are the implications for businesses across Switzerland and Europe?

Join the Asia Society Switzerland for a high-level off the record conversation on these issues featuring Jamil Anderlini, Asia Editor at the Financial Times; Dr. Alessandro Curioni, Head IBM Research Europe and Africa; and Dr. Eric Durand, Head Cyber Center of Competence, SwissRe.

The conversation will be moderated by Nico Luchsinger, Co-Executive Director, Asia Society Switzerland; and Martin Naville, CEO, Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce.
