EU Open Strategic Autonomy and the Transatlantic Trade Relationship

This webinar features a discussion between Sabine Weyand, Director-General for Trade at the European Commission; Kellie Meiman Hock, Managing Partner at McLarty Associates; Mary Lovely, Senior Fellow at Peterson Institute for International Economics; and Daniel Price, Managing Director of Rock Creek Global Advisors, moderated by AGI Senior Fellow and Geoeconomics Program Director Peter Rashish.

The European Union has recently made “Open Strategic Autonomy” the cornerstone of its approach to trade policy. During this webinar, panelists address what is behind this idea and what it means for cooperation on WTO reform, common trade policy challenges from China, and creating new rules for the digital economy and AI. With the U.S. presidential election less than two months away, the webinar also examines the outlook for transatlantic trade relations under either a second Trump or a new Biden administration.
