Flashpoint: Transformational Diplomacy to Advance Freedom Concordia Summit 2021 Presentation by Keith Krach
Founder and Chairman Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue
Former Under Secretary of State, Keith Krach, describes the genesis of tech diplomacy, and his creation of the new discipline of techno-economic statecraft. Krach also demonstrates why TRUST was the key principle in turning the tide on the Chinese Communist Party’s 5G ambitions and building an alliance of 60 like-minded countries, representing ⅔ of the world’s GDP, 200 Telcos and a host of industry-leading companies to win against authoritarianism for all areas of techno-economic competition.
The Clean Network’s repeatable NONPARTISAN model proved China Inc. is beatable and supplied the unity and continuity of policy between a Republican and Democratic administration so critical to our allies. This is what General Secretary Xi fears the most.
The Center for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue University (CTDP) is a new think tank that focuses on the intersection of technology and policy. CTDP sees 21st century diplomacy as being uniquely driven by technology capabilities, which should advance freedom, democracy, and human rights, as well as U.S. national security and prosperity.
