Ambassador Robert Strayer, Senior Advisor Brian Bulatao and high-ranking colleagues from FCC, FTC, DoD, Commerce, and USAID are currently participating in MWC Barcelona (formerly Mobile World Congress). The main topic of discussion is 5G, the next generation of mobile communication, which promises to transform both economy and society by connecting billions of devices to the Internet and enabling a broad array of new applications. The United States will continue to work to ensure that partners and allies maintain secure and reliable communications networks and supply chains to reduce the risks of unauthorized access and malicious cyber activity.
