China’s “digital silk road” initiative, which aims to help the country’s tech giants sell their products to emerging markets, has raised concerns that China will dominate global internet standards, including those for critical 5G technologies, to the exclusion of American companies. But what is the Chinese perspective? Will this “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, will join Clay Shirky, American author and leading voice on the internet’s social impact, to reveal the lesser-known path of China’s ambition in ascending to the super power in the digital world.
