Purdy’s virtual panel titled “Is US-China Trade Compliant Information with Telecoms and National Security?” Will take place Wednesday, February 17th at 1 pm ET. Claude Barfield, a Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, will attend the panel. The panel will be led by Milton Mueller and Shane Tews, Professor at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Visiting Researcher at the American Enterprise Institute. The panel will include a balanced discussion around cybersecurity, use of common standards and standards development organizations, telecommunications equipment trade, internet services and e-commerce.

Why is the US turning to technology nationalism and withdrawing from its support for the free market economy in communications to counter the rise of Chinese capabilities? Is the use of Huawei equipment really a national security threat to the US? Internet, policy and cybersecurity experts will discuss these questions and the overall impact of the US-China conflict on telecommunications policy during the virtual panel discussion. Use TPRC48 February 17-19 for more conversation from the experts themselves about these answers and the latest issues facing the telecommunications industry.
