The United States-China tech cold war is about to spread, and that will force leaders to make some difficult decisions.
A digital Iron Curtain was drawn when US President Donald Trump moved to isolate Huawei Technologies. Within a week, global corporations were caught in this divide. Alphabet Inc's Google said it would cease some ties with Huawei, including limiting the Chinese electronics company's access to its Android mobile operating system. From there, telecom firms in Japan, Britain and Taiwan were among those that halted orders for Huawei's newest devices.
