The US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC) will hold a hearing titled "Technology, Trade, and Military-Civil Fusion: China's Pursuit of Artificial Intelligence, New Materials, and New Energy" to examine China's development of artificial intelligence, new materials, and energy storage, renewable energy, and nuclear power. It will assess China's capabilities in producing and commercializing these technologies vis-à-vis the United States and its ambitions to export these technologies and shape their global governance in ways that disadvantage the United States. The hearing will also consider China's potential military application of these technologies and strategic implications for the United States.
The USCC is mandated by Congress to investigate, assess, and report to Congress annually on “the national security implications of the economic relationship between the United States and the People's Republic of China.”
Members of the public may attend in person. More information is available at this Federal Register notice.
