In November 2022, CIGI held a conference that investigated developments in data, artificial intelligence (AI) and digital trade in China’s digital governance practices. This year’s conference will focus on two areas: the development of emerging technologies and their implications for cybersecurity in Canada, China and the United States; and US-led tech export controls and their implications for China’s technological self-reliance and innovation. In both areas, deep discussion among experts from Canada, China, Europe and the United States will also shed light on spillovers to the rest of the world.
The workshop will consist of three parts:
- keynote remarks by David R. Stilwell, United States Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs (2019–2021);
- a panel discussion on emerging technologies and cybersecurity in US-China-Canada relations; and
- a panel discussion on the US-led tech export controls in China and their implications.
Each session will have four speakers followed by an open discussion among participants.
