Access Partnership to Host “What’s Next in the US-China Trade War” Roundtable in London

12 Jul 2018 | 16:30

Since March 2018, the US and China have held a series of high-level trade talks on bilateral trade deficit reduction, ending forced technology transfer practices in China, and rolling back the Made in China 2025 industrial plan. Amidst heated negotiations, US President Trump first promised to save Chinese telecommunication manufacturer ZTE from a life-threatening US export ban — then announced 25% tariffs on USD 34 billion of Chinese imports on 6 June.

You can be forgiven if your head is spinning, because that’s the goal. Join Access Partnership on 12 July to understand the escalating trade conflict, its impact on the tech sector, and why keeping us off balance may be a deliberate strategy. Access Partnership’s Laura Sallstrom, Global Head of Public Policy, Xiaomeng Lu, International Public Policy Manager, and Logan Finucan, Policy Analyst, are coming straight from our Washington DC office to update you on the latest in the US-China trade tensions. The event will be followed with drinks and networking.

To RSVP, please email with your name, job title and company.

If you can’t make it to the office, still email and we will send you dial in details.
