The Center for International Business Advancement (CIBA) and the World Trade Council of Wichita (WTCouncil) will host a virtual presentation at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (IFIT), a leading think tank in Washington, D.C., at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 28.
Panelists for this event will include Usha Haley, W. Frank Barton Distinguished Chair in International Business, and director of the Center for International Business Advancement; Scott Kennedy, Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Peter Cowhey, former dean at University of California San Diego.
Haley will speak on preliminary results from her National Science Foundation-funded research and forthcoming authored book for the Oxford University Press. China is now on the front-burner for policy with various federal government agencies and the U.S. Congress is giving it focused attention. Technology and patent protection has emerged as a top issue for the U.S. and many other countries and companies worldwide that deal with China either as trading partner or as investor. The panel will contribute to this discussion.
