Romania Tech Diplomacy

Michelle Giuda: “Countries like Romania are on the cusp of a great leap economically, technologically and culturally. But there is a four-dimensional contest between the Free World and authoritarian States: it’s military, it’s economic, it’s cultural and it’s diplomatic. Technology is at the crossroads of that competition. We believe at the Krach Institute that technology must advance freedom, and trust is the ultimate accelerator for that.”
