This meeting discussed how best to balance the requirements for increased U.S.-allied defense collaboration and effective technology controls. Bill Greenwalt, nonresident senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), and Jim Schoff, senior director of the U.S.-Japan NEXT Alliance Initiative at Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA helped guide the conversation.
The timeliness of this meeting was manifested by the most recent remarks of the Australian defense industry minister. He spotlighted the crippling effects of U.S. export control and tech transfer regulations (ITAR) on the future of AUKUS.
