The future of the U.S. economy will be determined in significant part on whether the United States can win the “race for global innovation advantage.” Each day our competitor nations are seeking to grow and attract technology-based firms to their borders. What factors determine where global companies, particularly IT companies, locate facilities around the world? What are other nations doing to attract those facilities? What is the impact on the United States? And what should the United States be doing?

Please join ITIF and a distinguished panel to explore issues impacting U.S. innovation and competitive advantage - from technology policy to tax and trade protectionism.
