The Race to 5G
The third edition of our Supertrends Webinar Series 2020 – The Race to 5G - focused on current developments with long-term implications for the general investment landscape. With the spotlight on 5G, the webinar was centered on the significance of the technology - one of the lynchpins of the fourth Industrial Revolution, surveyed the players in the race for 5G supremacy and took a deep dive into how one of the technology’s leading lights, Huawei, is navigating the storm of political and trade tensions currently occupying the US and China. Amid COVID-19 and the ensuing global economic collapse, the discussion also touched on the US-China conflict specifically on the 5G race and the ongoing onslaught on China’s position in the US-China strategic competition and worsening trade relations.
