Bloomberg: RWR Senior Analyst, Claire Chu, Comments on Proposed Digital Trade Agreement

On July 15, Bloomberg addressed the ambi­tions and poten­tial chal­lenges of U.S. pol­i­cy mak­ers pur­su­ing a dig­i­tal trade agree­ment as a means to pro­tect­ing against the risks and threats present in the involve­ment of Chi­nese com­pa­nies in the tech­nol­o­gy sec­tors of coun­tries across East Asia. RWR’s Senior Ana­lyst, Claire Chu, com­ment­ed in the piece, any gov­ern­ment that wel­comes Chi­nese com­pa­nies faces such con­cerns, as “data trans­fer is inevitable due to Beijing’s data-appro­pri­a­tion pow­ers and over­sight mechanisms.”
