Digital Silk Road: Will China Dominate the Global Internet?

China’s “digital silk road” initiative aims to help the country’s tech giants sell their products to emerging markets. But the initiative has raised concerns among U.S. businesses that China will dominate global internet standards, including those for critical 5G technologies, restricting their ability to compete. What is the Chinese perspective and response? Will the “digital silk road” help enrich emerging economies as they embrace new waves of technology?

Winston Ma, CEO of China Silkroad Investment & Development and author of a new book on China’s digital development, joins Clay Shirky, author and leading voice on the internet’s social impact, to reveal the lesser-known path of China’s ambition and ascension to super power status in the digital world.
