Virtual Event | An Allied Response to Beijing’s COVID Obstructionism

Please be advised: This event will premiere on this page at 12:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, September 16. Register for the event here.

Join Hudson Institute CEO John Walters and Senior Fellow David Asher for a conversation with British MP and Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Tom Tugendhat and Australian Senator and Select Committee on COVID-19 Deputy Chair James Paterson on the origins of COVID-19 and how the U.S. and its allies can work together to hold the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) accountable for its obstruction, lies, and malfeasance.

Despite offers of assistance, diplomatic entreaties, and polite requests for access to data by governments and health authorities across the globe, the CCP remains committed to obstructing investigations into the origins of COVID-19. Following the inconclusive results of the U.S. intelligence community’s inquiry into this matter, how can America work with its closest allies to get to the bottom of one of the most important questions of our time? Please join Hudson Institute for this timely discussion.
