In the current China-US trade war, some see an analogy to the Japan-US trade dispute over semiconductors in the 1980s. But past US success does not augur victory in the present conflict over 5G tech—today’s China is far more capable and innovative than 1980s Japan.

The China-US trade war has turned into a “tech war,” with the US aiming to block Huawei from building global 5G networks.
