A digital agenda for the Trump-Xi summit

  When US President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping meet at Mar-a-Lago on April 6–7, the talks will span a vast array of economic, diplomatic, and security issues. Laying the groundwork for a future US-China digital agenda should be given top priority, not least from the reality that policies and practices concerning the internet and cross-border data flows ultimately sweep in trade and investment policies; privacy and surveillance; and national security, including espionage, cyberattacks, and ultimately the potential for cyberwarfare.
