Virtual Event | Implementing a New Maritime Strategy

Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Bryan Clark for a discussion with Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA) on U.S. maritime strategy, the U.S. Navy’s future, and the challenges of deterring China. Congress is considering the Biden Administration’s first defense budget, which would shrink the U.S. fleet to prioritize current readiness and future research and development within a lower overall budget than in preceding years. This approach is described as “divesting to invest,” but may not be appropriate given the accelerating threat posed by China. Please join Congresswoman Luria and Bryan Clark to discuss alternative strategies the Navy could pursue to continue deterring China and their implications for programs, budgets, and operations.
