Hey everyone, Happy New Year, and welcome back to another episode of The Negotiation. Today we are dropping our first episode of 2021 and are thrilled to be bringing to you Matt Sheehan, a Fellow at the Paulson Institute with the Digital Think Tank Macro Polo, and author of The Transpacific Experiment: How China and California Collaborate and Compete for our Future. In this episode, we talk about emerging tech trends he and his colleagues are seeing coming out of China and how that looks to define where China will be by 2025, as well as which companies or even sub-sectors are poised for success. We talk to Matt about his thoughts on the anticipated issue of semiconductor restrictions the US is implementing, whether 5G and AI are truly the future of technology leadership for China, and much much more. Enjoy!
