Within the context of a growing consensus that the U.S. must shore up its economic competitiveness as its strategic competitors begin to rapidly advance, this briefing explored China's role as a global, high-tech innovator.

Key questions addressed by the panel included: Where are China's key strengths and weaknesses? What does China's high-tech economic sector currently look like? What opportunities and threats does this pose to American business? How does the protection of intellectual property affect the U.S.-China business dynamic?
