During a hearing held on June 7, 2019, nine experts and researchers from academia, research institutes, and US. trade associations, including the American Composites Manufacturers Association’s (ACMA) VP of Composites Market Development, Daniel Coughlin, testified during a hearing held by the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission. The focus of the hearing was on “Technology, Trade and Military-Civil Fusion: China’s Pursuit of Artificial Intelligence, New Materials and New Energy”. At the hearing, the experts detailed the implications and impact of the Chinese’s government’s policies and strategy in three key fields: artificial intelligence, new and advanced materials, and new energy, particularly energy storage and nuclear power.

ACMA’s Coughlin testified on a panel focused on maintaining commercial and technical leadership in materials. His testimony highlighted the challenges that composites manufacturers face in competition with China, including eroding U.S. leadership in the development of composite materials, which are critical in the manufacturing of new and resilient products, applications, and technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, lightweight aircraft and drones, and strong and corrosion-proof bridges, water systems, utility structures, and more. He called for commercialization of technologies and research that are currently confined within government, military, and defense research facilities and can benefit a variety of domestic markets to better compete in an expanding global marketplace.
