Emerging and critical technologies: Investment, protection and regulation

How will national security concerns shape the economic and regulatory policy of new technologies?

Members event, Webinar
21 June 2021 — 2:00PM TO 3:30PM

Western governments are adopting new regulatory measures designed to restrict the access, ownership and control of emerging and critical technologies. These measures reflect the reality that a failure to develop and protect such technologies will result in significant risks to national and economic security due to a dependency on other nations. 

This developing ‘national security’ regulatory framework will shape the commercial environment of private organizations over the coming years as well as create new challenges for the balance between regulation and innovation while serving as a reminder that governments are inclined to use all the legislative and regulatory tools at their disposal to protect national or economic security interests.  

In this webinar, supported by Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, speakers discuss the increasing importance of national security concerns in economic and trade policy considerations amid an emerging technological arms race between geopolitical rivals.  

As with all member events, questions from the audience drive the conversation.
