On Tuesday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi presented the government’s initiative to implement global data security standards, “golden rules” which should be applied by Chinese and other companies around the world.
Among a number of points, the key ones are: preventing the illegal receipt of confidential personal information, ensuring the storage user`s data on the territory of their country, a ban on the use of technology to damage critical infrastructure in other countries or data theft, espionage.
Many experts have long pointed to the key cause of disagreements, conflicts and the real reason for the “trade war” between the United States and China is Washington’s accusations of Beijing on these counts. At the same time, Beijing has consistently denied such allegations.
Announcing the initiative, Wang Yi reiterated that the Chinese government does not engage in illegal practices regarding the use of data obtained abroad: “We have not asked and will not ask Chinese companies to transfer data abroad to the government in violation of the laws of other countries.”
Both countries are seeking leadership in technology industries, at the same time, the latest US steps are aimed at blocking the work of some Chinese technology companies in the United States, explaining this by protecting national security. The Chinese government, in its part, has long blocked services such as Google and Facebook in its country.
Some countries, like Australia, for example, have expressed concerns about some parts of Chinese law, which, apparently, to oblige companies to transfer data obtained from other countries to Beijing if required by the government.
Following the US allegations of Chinese espionage by Huawei, Australia and the United Kingdom have banned it from participating in next-generation 5G networks in their territories.
India recently banned 118 Chinese applications due to rising the tensions related to the dispute over the Himalayan border in the Ladakh region.
Last month, the United States unveiled its Clean Network program, which aims to “protect national assets, including the confidentiality of citizens’ data and the most confidential information of companies, from aggressive intrusions by criminals such as the Communist Party of China.”
The US State Department reports that more than 30 countries have joined the program, but did not name them.
Wang Yi in his speech sharply criticized the US initiative: “Striving for unilateral action, one country continues to make unfounded accusations against others in the name of a ‘clean’ network and uses security as an excuse to ban other countries that have a competitive advantage. It is necessary to resist such blatant acts of intimidation and reject them. ”
In August, President Donald Trump signed a decree banning transactions in the United States by TikTok ByteDance and WeChat Tencent.
It is unclear whether any country has joined China’s initiative and how it will be implemented and monitored. But the second largest economy in the world seeks to increase its role in setting standards for the use of data worldwide.
