About the Session

The world is moving Ferris-Bueller fast these days. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it. Supply chains are changing in response to pandemics, trade pressures and new economic developments. China is more confident on the world stage even as they confront large domestic challenges. Southeast Asia continues to emerge driving new changes to supply chains and trading patterns that will have large impacts on the Pacific Northwest. Climate change is a big challenge for the United States and the world but also offers new opportunities. Even in the midst of a pandemic affecting economies worldwide, we are seeing new exciting technologies emerge that will change the way we live and do business. The new Biden administration engages with a world very different than the one Biden did as vice president. What does this all mean for our region and lives? Join a conversation with Kellen Betts and Sam Kaplan, author of Challenging China on these issues, questions and more.
