A Transatlantic Response to the China Challenge
15. Juli 2021, 16:00 - 17:00
During his recent trip to Europe, President Biden stressed that the world’s liberal democracies are locked in a “strategic competition” with China for economic and political leadership. The United States and Europe need to forge a united front to meet the multifaceted challenge from China, including economic nationalism and predatory trade practices; harsh domestic repression of individual liberties and human rights; militarization of the South China Sea; and, Beijing’s aggressive attempts to intimidate and silence critics around the world.
Please join the Progressive Policy Institute for a timely dialogue between key US and EU policymakers on how to craft a stronger transatlantic response to China. Speakers include U.S. Representatives Gerry Connolly (VA-11) and Ami Bera (CA-07), both members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and MEP Reinhard Bütikofer of the Greens-European Free Alliance Party. Butikofer, who chairs a European Parliament committee focused on EU relations with China, has been the leading voice in Brussels for a tougher European response to China. PPI President Will Marshall will moderate the conversation.
Rep. Gerry Connolly, U.S. Rep VA 11th District, serves on the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs and the U.S House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
