Community Conversation: Ending America’s Reliance on China
 
August 19, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM,
Hosted on the Zoom platform

The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted America’s reliance on China’s economy for prescription drug manufacturing, PPE manufacturing, critical supply chain needs for American manufacturers, and more.
 
Prior to COVID-19, China was producing half the world’s medical masks.

What can and should be done to balance the scales of the trade partnership?

How are all businesses impacted in the United States by the partnership?

 
This isn’t just about COVID-19, it is also about electronics, textiles, furniture, toys, and more, which adds up to about a half a trillion dollars in imports annually.

Keynote presentations by David Dollar, senior fellow in the John L. Thornton China Center at the Brookings Institution and host of the Brookings trade podcast, Dollar&Sense, and Congressman Rob Wittman, VA-01.
 
Keynote Speakers:
