The issue of the Chinese threat in the field of telecommunications became the main leitmotif at the Washington conference,
5G - who is the first
Americans fear that the Middle Kingdom will taketoo large a share in the development of 5G networks, and the government decided to get ahead of Chinese companies in this direction. Relevant statements were made by representatives of the Ministry of Trade and the Ministry of Defense of the country at an export and control conference held in the US capital. The main topic was the question of retaining leading positions and preventing the expansion of Chinese companies to global telecommunications markets.
Officials say that telecommunicationscompanies from the United States at one time went to the Middle Kingdom, hoping to settle in the market capacity of nearly half a billion dollars. But the Chinese colleagues had other plans in this regard: having received the latest technologies at their disposal, the government-supported Celestial companies quickly drove all their competitors from the West, first in their market, and then began their expansion even into the United States itself. Also, dominance began in the markets of other countries.
What is decided
To deploy fifth generation networks fasterand more effective Chinese companies in the States will not take a segment under the control of the state, everything, as before - on private companies. However, the government will maximally stimulate such companies and the development of the sector. To do this, large venture funds will be involved in cooperation, share capital will be used, and asset management will be assisted. Governmental projects to subsidize this area will also be opened, joint development of American companies on 5G networks with Japanese manufacturers, European companies, Indian and Mexican companies will be encouraged. That is, everything will be done to ensure that the production of equipment for the networks of the fifth generation and their deployment around the world cost American companies as cheap as possible, with a minimum of bureaucratic delays.
In turn, China also does not intend to retreat, andwill strengthen the state support of their technology companies. This was especially true for the government of the Middle Kingdom after problems with Huawei. Today, the Chinese government considers this direction (the creation of 5G networks) a priority. The authorities of the Middle Kingdom are ready to increase subsidies to achieve their goals for as long as necessary.
In general, it seems that the networks of the fifth generationthanks to this rivalry, they can turn around the world in the near future. No wonder that smartphone makers are in such a hurry to release 5g versions of their smartphones in order to have a competitive advantage.
