ITIF filed comments with NTIA to assist in its efforts to develop a national strategy for 5G. Continued wireless innovation plays a critical role in integrating a wide range of emerging technologies into productive capacities throughout the economy. A successful and secure deployment of 5G, as well as sustained wireless innovation beyond 5G, are opportunities of national importance. This fact is not lost on our geopolitical rivals: For years China has enacted policies—some fair and legitimate, some not—to boost its domestic development, manufacture, and use of wireless technology. It is past time for a coordinated U.S. response.
