Hudson Institute will host an event to discuss the regulatory and geopolitical implications of the global race to develop 5G technology. The panel will include Q Networks’ Peter Atwal; former Chief of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, Admiral David Simpson; Hudson senior fellow and former commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission, Robert M. McDowell; and Hudson Senior Fellow Bill Schneider. The discussion will be moderated by Hudson Senior Fellow Arthur Herman.

The implementation of 5G wireless capabilities will transform how we use technology —from increasing internet speed and improving connectivity between our devices, to enabling novel uses of artificial intelligence. China has established itself as a global leader in the telecommunications industry, and many experts worry that reliance on Chinese-made technology gives Beijing unprecedented access to information, compromising the national security. While the Trump Administration has taken action against companies like Huawei. To compete with China, the U.S. will have to weigh how much government intervention is necessary and what kind.

**NOTE: This event is open to the press. All members of the media should RSVP to press@hudson.org.**
