Lunch Time Meeting

Trade, Investment and Technology Policy in Transatlantic Security


We will be hosting Bureau of Industry Security Assistant Secretary Rich Ashooh for an event on “Trade, Investment and Technology Policy in Transatlantic Security”.   Assistant Secretary Ashooh is ultimately responsible for several key U.S. policy issues including the entity list, 5G policy, dual-use export controls, and emerging technology policy.

This event will focus on several important issues between the United States and European Union, including U.S. and EU trade and investment and technology policy, as it relates to transatlantic defense and security.  A/S Ashooh will explore several important U.S.-EU issues and provide an update on the U.S. entity list (including Huawei) and investment screening under CFIUS/FIRRMA.

This engagement will discuss how the U.S. and EU can better work together on new emerging foundational technology given the effects of Chinese industrial policy and provide a venue to discuss some of the difficulty underpinning U.S.-EU disagreement on EDF.
