The Quest for Technology Supremacy

Are the U.S. and China Headed for a Great Tech Divide?

Are we heading towards a world that is essentially split in two by tech? Join us for a high-level conversation on the issues featuring Jamil Anderlini, Dr. Alessandro Curioni and Dr. Eric Durand.

The Quest for Technology Supremacy

We are more than a year into the «trade war» between the U.S. and China, and there is little anyone can agree on – except for the fact that this isn’t really about trade anymore (and perhaps never has been). What this is really about is technology.

Take Huawei for example: the Chinese giant recently found itself at peril of losing its U.S.-based suppliers, and is still battling to keep large contracts. The spat shone a spotlight on what some have called an emerging «tech cold war»: If countries have to choose sides when it comes to technology providers, are we heading towards a world that is essentially split in two by tech? 

Where do we stand in this global race for technology domination? Is a divide inevitable? And what are the implications for businesses across Switzerland and Europe?

Join us for a high-level off the record conversation on these issues featuring Jamil Anderlini, Asia Editor at the Financial Times; Dr. Alessandro Curioni, Head IBM Research Europe and Africa; and Dr. Eric Durand, Head Cyber Center of Competence, SwissRe.

The conversation will be moderated by Nico Luchsinger, Co-Executive Director, Asia Society Switzerland; and Martin Naville, CEO, Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce.

Please note that this event is held under Chatham House rules.
