Executive Roundtable with Orville Schell on "Silicon Triangle: The United States, Taiwan, China, and Global Semiconductor Security"VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Join Asia Society Northern California and Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations at Asia Society in New York, to unpack findings from a groundbreaking report on semiconductor security and U.S., Taiwan, and China relations. This report, jointly published by the Hoover Institution and the Asia Society Center on U.S.-China Relations, addresses the vulnerability of semiconductor supply chains, offers suggestions on how to maintain technological competitiveness in the U.S. and stability in Taiwan, and critical insights into the 'triangle' of interdependence between these three economies. This conversation will be moderated by H.-S. Philip Wong, the Willard R. and Inez Kerr Bell Professor in the School of Engineering at Stanford University and former Vice President of Corporate Research at TSMC, the largest semiconductor foundry in the world. Join our private, off-the-record Executive Roundtable on Tuesday, September 26 to engage with Schell and Wong in conversation about trends and future steps in technological geopolitics.
This program is a part of our Seeking Truth Through Facts U.S.-China Program Series, which focuses on new strategic frameworks for the bilateral relationship, plurilateral relationships, rebalancing trade, national security, technology, and climate change; as well as the global impact of the political and economic landscape.
