Limited Capacity seats available

As China launches its 19th Party Congress, its plans to shape cyberspace are becoming ever clearer. Through the publications of government and Party officials, we are increasingly getting insights into Chinese plans for the digital economy. Often however that information is only available to Chinese-speakers. Therefore, through New America, a group of China cyber experts have launched a new effort to translate and analyze key Chinese documents and make them available to a wider audience. 

At this event they will offer their insights on China’s plans for the digital economy, including cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, cryptocurrencies, internet governance, and much more. What have Chinese officials already told the world? What goals has Beijing already achieved? Where has China run into challenges? What new initiatives should we expect from the 19th Party Congress, the 4th World Internet Conference, and beyond? What does this mean for the United States?
