The United States government has undergone a rapid and bipartisan shift in its approach to the People’s Republic of China. Increased urgency and alarm regarding the PRC’s efforts to control critical supply chains and leverage commercial tech for military purposes has led to stronger economic competition, particularly in emerging and exponential technologies.
In a conversation with former Under Secretary of the U.S. Army, past Member of Congress, and decorated Army combat veteran Hon. Patrick Murphy, the American Security Project (ASP) will address ongoing efforts to counter the Chinese technological threat and win the competition over the critical technologies of tomorrow.
As the US House of Representatives Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party continues its work to shape the next years of U.S.-China policy, the American Security Project is expanding its own focus on these critical issues with a series of white papers, ASP Insights, and events.
