U.S. Universities Become Ground Zero for Cyber Influence from China and Others

The U.S. is steadily increasing pressure on #China, and Chinese companies, in an effort to thwart what many see as aggressive attempts by Beijing to spy on, and exert influence over, U.S. policymakers and other governments.

And the latest front in this geopolitical tug of war appears to be universities, which are increasingly seen as vulnerable to espionage and sabotage, not only from China, but from other foreign competitors as well.

White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner Pre-Party Hosted by the Embassy of Qatar and The Washington Diplomat at the U.S. Institute of Peace

Over 800 people celebrated the importance of journalism at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner Pre-Party on April 26 hosted by Qatari Ambassador Meshal bin Hamad Al Thani and The Washington Diplomat media company at the U.S. Institute of Peace — a fitting venue to emphasize the critical role that today’s media plays in supporting a peaceful world.

Guests included ambassadors and members of the diplomatic corps; top-ranking U.S. officials from the White House, Capitol Hill, Pentagon and other agencies; members of the media from outlets such as ABC, NBC, CNN, BBC and Fox; captains of industry; Hollywood celebrities; and other VIPs to support the importance of journalistic freedom and integrity in today’s divided political climate.

The festivities featured entertainment and live music by DJ HEM and DJ Spider from Los Angeles — along with appearances by celebrities such as Sonja Morgan and Karen Huger of Bravo TV’s “Real Housewives” series — as well as elaborate cuisine and cocktails in one of the city’s most dramatic venues. The party, which ran well past midnight, was sponsored by DC United and Long & Foster |Christie’s International Real Estate.

This invitation-only event follows last year’s successful “Come Together” pre-party bash co-hosted by The Washington Diplomat at the British Ambassador’s Residence that included administration officials such as Kellyanne Conway and Sarah Huckabee Sanders; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; Miss Universe 2018 Demi-Leigh-Nel-Peters; and Grammy Award-winning DJ Paul Oakenfold.

An independent monthly publication and media company with a readership of more than 200,000, The Washington Diplomat has served for 25 years as the flagship newspaper of the diplomatic and international community in Washington D.C., and New York. It is the only publication distributed to all 185 foreign embassies in the nation’s capital, as well as the World Bank, the IMF, the IDB, lawmakers on Capitol Hill, the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, various Fortune 500 companies, federal agencies, think tanks and various points of influence in Washington, Virginia, Maryland and New York.
