How do Chinese cyber laws and regulations affect multinational companies, and US-China relations? Samm Sacks of Yale Law School walks us through the latest developments in this arena—we discuss:

  • Why Chinese data policy has been on front-page news in the past few years;
  • What China is hoping to gain from its new laws and regulations;
  • The status of TikTok negotiations, and the prospects of a deal given today’s political climate;
  • How the US and China can — yet sometimes don’t — leverage their data policy infrastructure against one another.
