Virtual Event

The Atlantic Council’s Freedom and Prosperity Center invites you to join a panel discussion on Wednesday, November 2, from 2:30-4:00pm ET on China and Taiwan’s performances in key development indexes.

Do countries need freedom to achieve prosperity? Do democracies or autocracies have the better answers to the aspirations of the peoples of the world? Our panelists manage country indexes that measure key aspects of a nation’s well-being. They discuss how China and Taiwan fare in their indexes and what this tells us about the contrasting development models they represent. In-person attendees will have the opportunity to engage with speakers and ask questions.

This discussion will be held in person at the the National Press Club at 529 14th St NW in Washington DC and via Zoom. The event is open to the press and on-the-record.

Live stream viewers may submit questions via email. Light refreshments will be served.
