In a Win for the U.S., the U.K. Moves to Oust Huawei From Its 5G Rollout
The United Kingdom's move to oust Chinese tech giant Huawei from its telecommunications networks in the coming years will not only impede the country's 5G rollout, but will further dim hopes for a U.K.-China trade deal that could help London expand its economic relationships beyond Europe post-Brexit. But the decision nonetheless marks a significant victory for the United States, which has been pressuring its European allies to purge Huawei from their 5G infrastructure -- especially if the British ban ends up being replicated elsewhere on the Continent.

U.S.: Cisco's CEO Rebuffs Idea for Taking an Ownership Stake in Ericsson or Nokia
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins said his company would not invest in building infrastructure for 5G telecommunications networks and brushed off U.S. Attorney General William Barr's suggestion that U.S. companies should invest in or take control of European telecom equipment makers Ericsson and Nokia to counter Huawei's 5G influence, the Financial Times has reported.

In Europe, Fear Could Damage the Economy As Much as Coronavirus
Fear is spreading faster than the coronavirus in Europe, leaving its governments struggling to find a balance between taking measures to prevent the expansion in their countries of the coronavirus outbreak that originated in China and avoiding a diplomatic conflict with Beijing triggered by acts of xenophobia against Chinese citizens.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed (R) speaks with French President Emmanuel Macron after signing agreements during a meeting on March 12, 2019, in Addis Ababa.
Why France Is Bullish on Business in Ethiopia
The Horn of Africa, with its booming economies and critical location that abuts key international shipping lanes, has long attracted outside interest -- as well as interminable conflicts. Yet as regional heavyweight Ethiopia opens its economy after decades of closed, state-centric development, new outside players are even more eager to do business there. Among that group is France, which is actively positioning its flagship companies to win big in the country in the years ahead. And luckily for Paris, Addis Ababa's long aversion to overdependence on any single outside power will boost French businesses as they seek to make inroads in a massive market of 110 million people.

Kaliningrad: Measuring Up Against Europe, Not Mainland Russia
Sandwiched between European Union members Poland and Lithuania, Kaliningrad, Russia's westernmost outpost, has always been of great interest for many -- and not just because of its military significance and motley, centuries-old history. Indeed, the territory that is now Kaliningrad has been ruled at various times by the Teutonic Order, Prussia, imperialist Germany, the Soviets and, finally, Russia. For many who recall the Soviet past and live just a hop, skip and a jump away, the exclave is magnetic for its proximity and the preservation of the relics of the Soviet past. But once you're in Kaliningrad, "Russian" isn't quite the description that many want to hear, as it's a territory that looks more toward Europe than Russia.

By Mixing Tech and Human Rights Sanctions on China, the White House Crosses the Rubicon
Conspicuously absent from an emerging China-U.S. trade truce is the outstanding issue of U.S. export restrictions against Huawei. The omission reveals an uncomfortable and growing reality for U.S. tech firms: Politically convenient trade truces will come and go, but the strategic competition between the United States and China is deepening. Technology is a fundamental component of this broader rivalry, which also makes it a radioactive element in the trade talks and a prime target for China hawks advocating a decoupling of the U.S. and Chinese economies. At this stage of the competition, national security, human rights and sovereignty are getting mashed together along with American public attitudes on how to contend with China when it comes to shaping U.S. policy. As a result, the political room to negotiate on an issue like Huawei is narrowing by the day, driving a more hard-line U.S. policy toward China overall.

China's Risky Return to Nationalism
Chinese nationalism is once again on the rise. From the public military spectacle showcased at the Oct. 1 National Day parade, to the recent slew of boycotts against foreign firms for their perceived support of the Hong Kong protests, a burst of patriotic fervor has increasingly made its way into China's state policies, public behaviors and business decisions. It's no coincidence that this chauvinist surge has occurred in tandem with Beijing's rising strategic and ideological clashes with the United States and its allies over democracy and human rights issues in places like Hong Kong and Tibet. Today, Chinese patriotism can be characterized as an uneasy relationship between the population's feelings of pride, hopes and anxiety about the country's future, as well as a deep ambivalence toward the West. And the Communist Party has expertly harnessed these feelings to reinforce its role as the guardian of the Chinese state, emboldened a renewed sense of foreign

China, India: Beijing Threatens 'Reverse Sanctions' if New Delhi Bans Huawei
China has threatened to place "reverse sanctions" on Indian companies operating in the country should New Delhi decide to block Chinese tech giant Huawei from its market, Reuters reported Aug. 6. According to the leak cited by Reuters, the Indian ambassador to China reportedly met with Chinese officials on July 10, where they discussed Beijing's concerns about the U.S. campaign to bar Huawei from the world's 5G infrastructure. During the meeting, Beijing also allegedly said that it hoped India would make its own "independent and objective decision." The threat could be a sign that China is willing to take a more aggressive stance against other countries blocking Huawei's involvement in their 5G networks at the behest of the United States.

Russia: Moscow Divvies Up 5G and Quantum Development Among Its Proxies
Russia has pursued various efforts to strengthen its position in the face of sanctions and deteriorating relations with the West and its allies. One major element of this strategy has been reducing Moscow's economic reliance on the rest of the world. In tune with Russian goals of self-sustainability in the domains of internet and communication, Moscow is now also pushing for "technological sovereignty" as a way to reduce economic and intellectual dependencies.
