Documentary: America Takes on China Inc. Part 1: 5G Trifecta
This story is fundamentally about three things:
- The American Dream taking on China Inc.
- A Silicon Valley veteran beating Huawei
- And how trust is the key to defeating the Chinese Communist Party.
Under the leadership of Keith Krach, then Under Secretary of State, China’s tech giant Huawei’s ambition to take over the global 5G communications was shattered in a spectacular way by a patriotic team of Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. In the process, they proved that China Inc. is beatable and exposed its biggest weakness—lack of trust.
Krach’s team harnessed the three biggest areas of the U.S. competitive advantage—rallying its allies and friends, leveraging the resources of the private sector, and amplifying the moral high ground of democratic principles. By building an alliance of likeminded countries and companies based on democratic values, the initiative garnered overwhelming international support and bipartisan backing.
