Washington — As the Administration considers how to handle China’s pending new cybersecurity law, the Computer & Communications Industry Association sent a letter to Gary Cohn, the Director of President Trump’s National Economic Council.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“The Administration needs to seize this opportunity to head off the type of discriminatory foreign regulation that hurts US companies, workers, and jobs and the economy.  This is the type of raw deal that needs to stopped at its outset.”
