TRPC’s Gareth Tan participates in Wargame on US Embargo on China’s Technology Sector

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in late December 2019, relations between the United States and China have increasingly deteriorated. Adding to that are the recent events in Hong Kong, increased tensions over the sale of weapons to Taiwan, and the growing bipartisan consensus in Washington that the United States must protect domestic industries to retain a technological edge.

In June 2020, Wikistrat ran an economic wargame in which some of the world’s leading experts on China explored the impact of an extreme-case scenario on the relations between the US and China and examined how the relations will evolve as a result.

40 Top experts on China and the US, were divided in accordance with their expertise to their corresponding team. Each participant role played a certain political influential character in those countries. Wikistrat collaborative platform uses wargames and role-playing, in particular, to facilitate thinking as the target actor, to increase creativity and to encourage out of the box thinking. This gamification technique was established so participants will feel more open in their suggestions and discussions.
