China’s emergence as a force to be reckoned with in the digital realm has caused some concern in Western countries, on topics ranging from Chinese espionage and control over data flows to a possible invasion of Taiwan in order to capture semiconductor manufacturing facilities. To what extent are these concerns justified, and what is it we need to know about China’s digital technology capabilities to better assess the future of the digital realm? Join us for a panel conversation with three leading experts in the field, who will shed greater light on these important developments.
