Description: The discussion addresses recently expanded U.S. regulation of foreign entry into U.S. telecommunications markets with emphasis on national security and protection of the U.S. digital supply chain. 
Topics will include the practical implications (including transaction delays and retroactive revocation) of the expansion of the current “Team Telecom,” a multi-agency group currently consisting of the FCC, the DOJ and Homeland Security that assists the FCC in review of foreign applicants seeking U.S. telecom entry and licensing authorization to a newly created Committee for the Assessment of Foreign Participation in the U.S. Telecommunications Services Sector. 
The panel will also discuss the implications of the Commerce Department’s proposed ICTS Supply Chain regulation, the recently codified Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018 (FIRRMA) regulations (expanding CFIUS review) and other governmental entry barriers into U.S. telecommunications and digital infrastructure.
In particular, the program will address how the new Committee, as well as other expanded foreign entry regulations could (or perhaps already have) affect the foreign investment climate and how U.S. policy has shifted from that of a “free market” to one viewing foreign investment as a potential national security threat - especially as it concerns China and other adversarial sovereign entities.
