Prospects for Transatlantic Cooperation in the Post-Covid Era
|Wed. May 12, 2021
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
This event is brought to you by the EACC Texas. As both the United States and the European Union seek to recover from the Covid-19 crisis, the question is whether they can build back the transatlantic agenda for a new era marked by growing competition with China, technological change, and a global climate crisis. What are the political and economic prospects for Europe given a slower vaccination rollout and a smaller stimulus package compared to the U.S.? Where can the Biden administration and European capitals make quick progress on trade, digital and climate issues over the next six to twelve months? How can the transatlantic relationship be retrofitted to better deal with a new set of challenges stemming from China’s global rise, the need to diversify global supply chains, lead on sustainability, and lead on digital and technology issues?
