"We're more interested in what the next wave is," Adam Boehler, CEO of U.S. International Development Finance Corporation and a leader in the administration's push to break U.S. reliance on Chinese supply chains, told Just the News. "We're interested in 6G, and [that is] where we're investing, because that's where both the United States and other countries will dominate and where China is not going to rule through subsidies."
"We're going to look at any emerging technology, and I'm not just looking at us, we're looking abroad at any emerging technology," Boehler said "It's another advantage we have over China. We are not tied to one country. We're not tied to one country's technology. We're going to take the best of the best around the world from emerging technologies. Those are startups, etc. It's not a Huawei game. It's a next generation game."
