The roundtable will feature a broad discussion on the future of the UK-US cooperation, with a focus on the intersection of trade & economic policy and national security. The COVID19 crisis has added urgency to the question of how resilient and safe our supply chains are. While the US and the UK have disagreed on 5G network security, a recent decision by the UK government to change its 5G supplier strategy raises interesting questions about 5G rollout and future leadership in mobile communications.
As two of the world’s leading free trade champions, the UK and the US have an opportunity to take the lead and set an example of several highly pressing issues. Join us for this virtual roundtable to discuss:
- How do we use our world-leading frameworks to promote respect for IP and encourage innovation worldwide?
- Where is the balance between maintaining the global supply chains which have helped deliver prosperity in the transatlantic corridor and beyond, and defending key national security interests?
- How do we ensure the UK and the US take full advantage of the immense promise of 5G? Can the ‘D10’ proposal work?
