WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States will host a conference in about a month on 5G that U.S. President Donald Trump will attend and that will include companies such as Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters on Friday.
The conference will take place as the White House seeks to counter the influence of Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei Technologies Co Ltd in next-generation 5G technology.
