Tech, Trade and China 2021

The Future of Multilateral Approaches to China Tech Policy

Tuesday, April 27
8:45 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. (PT)





Should the U.S. cooperate or confront China on tech issues? Can the U.S. work with its allies to advance areas of common interests with respect to China? What role should unilateral trade measures, including export controls or tariff sanctions, play in our approach to China? How can China and the U.S. work together to address global challenges such as pandemics and climate change?

Please join us for the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology’s third annual Tech, Trade and China conference. This year’s program will consist of three sessions:

  • The Role of the WTO and Trade Agreements in Technology and IP
  • Export Controls and Technology Collaboration
