Will the East and West Digital World Split in Two?

July 24, 2019

Policy Implications for Entrepreneurs, Corporates and Governments

In this 2-day course, we will examine the ways in which China is pursuing legitimate alternatives to financial arrangements traditionally controlled by the West. These include SWIFT, cloud, quantum communications and computing, multi-national lending, development aid, 5G, and payments. We will explore and offer opinions about expected outcomes in a digital clash of civilisations. This has important implications for staffing and balance sheet management for banks and insurance, strategic planning for corporations, long term planning for governments, and lending allocation for multilateral institutions. The intersection of this is 5G and control of digitalisation — it’s all about fintech.
