World Today Discussion Series “U.S.-China Conflict and the Case of Huawei: Business, Policy and Legal Issues and Implications”

Huawei is the world's No. 1 telecommunications equipment maker, despite being effectively shut out of the U.S. market. The company has spent decades building a strong presence in markets around the world and last year, overtook Apple as the second biggest supplier of smartphones. The detention in Canada of Huawei’s CFO for extradition to the U.S. caused major concerns in international business, particularly among companies and executives in the telecoms and technology sectors. Huawei's rise as a global tech company is under threat as an increasing number of governments express concern that its technology could provide a back-door for the Chinese authorities. The assault on Huawei's business reflects the increasingly bitter rivalry between Beijing and Washington over who will control the technologies of the future. There is particular concern about the security of 5G because it will be used to carry vast amounts of data, connecting robots, autonomous vehicles and other sensitive devices. Join the Center for Global Management (CGM) and Professor Christine Loh, in a moderated discussion with technology and legal experts who will explore the business, policy and legal issues surrounding the Huawei case. They will address the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, U.S. trade sanctions, cyber-based national security issues and how these have accelerated as well as how U.S. law might be used. They also will examine the possible wider implications and scenarios that could evolve from these positions and how the cost and timing of 5G rollout might also be influenced. Open to students from UCLA Anderson, UCLA School of Law and UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and by Invitation Only. RSVP required. For more details and to register>>
