Abstract

Chairman Sullivan, Ranking Member Markey, other distinguished members of the sub-committee on security, thank you for calling this important hearing on “China’s Challenges to US Commerce” and for the invitation to testify today. This hearing is important: China is moving very quickly into the Information Age with a strategic approach that bolsters their national interests. The United States, on the other hand, seems to be standing by, beholden to large technology companies focused primarily on connecting more people to generate more data to further bolster their profits. In the absence of a national strategy to protect Americans’ data, promote the competitiveness of American firms, and secure our information and technology infrastructure assets, the U.S. risks ceding its leadership role in the future economic, military, and political landscapes.
