China Executive Briefing | Tech Cooperation or Decoupling?VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Can Australia work with China on science and technology?
What are China’s priorities in science and technology? How will China’s rapid progress in the critical technologies of the future and the US-China tech decoupling impact Australia? Join us to discuss China’s quest to be a science and technology superpower, its race with and against the United States and what it all means for Australia.
In its latest 5-year plan, top Chinese leadership presented China’s advancement in energy, environmental and health technologies as a solution to global problems, such as climate change and pandemics. But as tensions with China grow, many countries, including the United States and Australia, are reassessing the value of technological and scientific cooperation with China and limiting their exposure to Chinese technology. Will it stop China from becoming a technology superpower? Can Australia and China work together in finding technological solutions to energy, environmental and health challenges? Can Australian businesses and universities continue actively collaborating with Chinese researchers, amidst distrust, political tensions and limited talent mobility?
Asia Society Australia warmly invites you to a special China Executive Briefing with Chim Lee, Lead Policy Analyst (Science, Technology and Innovation) at China Policy, Michael Milne, Executive Director of the University of Sydney Centre in China, and Yuan Wang, Head of UNSW Torch Innovation Precinct, in conversation with Liza Lin, Senior Correspondent of the Wall Street Journal, as they discuss how to maintain cooperation with China in technology and science despite the current geopolitical and economic tensions.
