China, Germany Working on Cybersecurity Deal, Envoy Says

(Beijing) – China and Germany are working to reach an agreement this year to strengthen cybersecurity as both countries seek to upgrade their manufacturing industries with advanced digital technologies, says Michael Clauss, the German ambassador to China.

“We will witness an exponential increase in industrial data flows,” he said. “This is why cyber and data security have become such important issues.”

Clauss said that in October Premier Li Keqiang agreed with visiting Chancellor Angel Merkel to prepare a Sino-German agreement on cyber matters that is expected to be finalized around June, when the cabinets of the two nations meet for joint governmental consultations.
