The European Union before China's rise as a tech power: the 5G case.- Isabel Gacho Carmona.

The rise of China has brought a new scenario of structural competition between Washington and Beijing. In this competition, technological supremacy plays a fundamental role. The European Union, an actor without technological autonomy, has been pressured by both powers to veto or include Huawei in its 5G networks. This is the first example of a situation that has signs of lengthening over time. In this new scenario, in which technological development is indispensable for autonomy and power, and which is characterized by geopolitical competition, member states cannot compete separately. It is time to rethink our role on a global scale and design ambitious measures to be autonomous and competitive.
