Sustainability, climate change, equality and workers’ rights are key components of the Biden/Harris trade agenda. China is a top concern, as is the rebuilding of strong trade relationships with allies. We will explore the trade challenges facing the US now with current and former trade officials, experts on Capitol Hill and organizations providing new ideas for the Biden administration.
We will also take a closer look at the role of the tech industry in Washington. While Silicon Valley used to have limited interest in and influence on the goings-on in Washington, tech firms have now emerged as major players on the political stage. We will meet with some of the most influential lobbyists representing these firms and hear their take on tech and trade policy in the US and in Europe.
