The Transatlantic alliance finds itself facing significant challenges. Russia is increasingly assertive and aggressive, and utilizes every means at its disposal to advance its strategic aims. Meanwhile, China aims to advance its power and influence across the globe through promoting its flagship policies and policing China discourse while suppressing human rights at home, including in Hong Kong. Coupled with these challenges is the ongoing economic, societal, political, and security upheaval resulting from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. What impact will Covid-19 have on the future of Europe, and European economic productivity?
Transatlantic unity remains vital. The Netherlands is a crucial partner in protecting and advancing the principles that undergird the Atlantic alliance. Join us as Stef Blok, Minister of Foreign Affairs of The Kingdom of the Netherlands, addresses the future of US-European cooperation at this critical juncture.
