Event Details

The upcoming September summit of G20 Leaders in Hangzhou, China, will be critical opportunity for world leaders to address challenges in the global economy. An integral component of these discussions will be how to address new policy challenges in the information and communications technology (ICT) industry.

China has proposed discussions on the global digital economy, innovation, and a number of other areas under the G20 framework that are of interest to both “traditional” ICT companies, as well as those looking to use the internet and information based systems to upgrade their operations. These discussions are coming at a critical time, as Chinese policymakers increasingly link together technology and national security.

To address how the discussions under the G20 on ICT may impact or be of interest to foreign companies, the American Chamber of Commerce in China (AmCham China), US-China Business Council (USCBC), Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), and US Information Technology Office (USITO) will be holding a policy discussion on July 20, 2016.

Topics will include an overview of how global ICT policy trends – such as data localization requirements, including those in China --- may impact foreign companies, what China’s proposed work on the G20 looks like, and how China’s domestic policy environment may be influencing the G20 digital economy discussions.

  • Ed Brzytwa, Director of Policy for Localization, Trade, and Multilateral Affairs, ITI
