China’s Attempt to Influence U.S. Institutions: A Conversation with FBI Director Christopher Wray

Join Hudson Institute for a conversation with Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray on the pernicious influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the United States and how the Bureau is responding to curtail Beijing’s far-reaching influence.

From manipulating Fortune 500 companies and stealing intellectual property to subverting U.S. universities and sowing disinformation, the CCP is employing a multipronged approach to distract Americans while filling its coffers and expanding its vision for a communist world.

How is the FBI responding to Beijing’s incursions into American businesses and in the U.S. financial sector? What strategies is the CCP employing to coopt American institutions? How can U.S. businesses protect themselves from Chinese data and monetary theft?

Director Wray will address these questions as he outlines the United States’ resolve to counter China’s attempts at stealing American wealth. The conversation will be moderated by Hudson Senior Fellow Walter Russell Mead.

“The FBI opens a New China-related counterintelligence investigation every 10 Hours” aid FBI Director, Christopher Wray
“China is engaged in a whole-of-state effort to become the world’s only superpower by any means necessary,. The greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality, is the counterintelligence and economic espionage threat from China. It’s a threat to our economic security—and by extension, to our national security.”
