White House: Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding the National Strategy for Critical and Emerging Technologies
Fri October, 2020, Age: 2 weeks
President Trump has released the “National Strategy for Critical and Emerging Technologies,” which outlines how the United States will promote and protect our competitive edge in fields such as artificial intelligence, energy, quantum information science, communication and networking technologies, semiconductors, military, and space technologies.
As the U.S.’s competitors and adversaries mobilize vast resources in these fields, American dominance in science and technology is more important now than ever, and is vital to its long-term economic and national security. The United States will not turn a blind eye to the tactics of countries like China and Russia, which steal technology, coerce companies into handing over intellectual property, undercut free and fair markets, and surreptitiously divert emerging civilian technologies to build up their militaries.
