Impact on the Global ICT Industry of China's "Secure and Controllable" Policies

Governments worldwide have elevated network and information security to the highest priority, but are taking very different approaches. Responses range from bolstering of public-private partnerships and information sharing on one end of the spectrum, to programs for replacement of foreign technologies and restrictions on Internet access and data flows on the other side. China's approach has included implementation of "secure and controllable" policies that emphasize the use and development of "indigenous technology." But striking the correct balance between security and an open, dynamic, interoperable Internet that drives innovation and economic growth is not an easy task. 

AmCham China’s Information & Communication Technology (ICT) Forum and the US Information Technology Office (USITO) bring together a uniquely qualified panel of policy and industry experts to discuss these emerging policy trends and the potential impact on businesses in China and around the world. The discussion will cover business challenges and opportunities in relation to the increasing restrictions on ICT products and services.
