Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg worries about China’s regulation on internet
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that he was worried about other countries replicating the Chinese model of internet regulation. He spoke about values in the west being different from Chinese values.
"Just to be blunt about it, I think there is a model coming out of countries like China that tend to have very different values than Western countries that are more democratic," quoted Zuckerberg in a live-streamed discussion with EU official Thierry Breton.
Zuckerberg further said that all countries should try and counter China’s way of regulating the internet and follow a more democratic approach. Zuckerberg believes that the best antidote to China’s approach is having a framework that comes out of Western democratic countries.
“I worry about that kind of model spreading to other countries. And I think that the best antidote to that is having a clear framework that comes out of Western democratic countries and that can become a standard around the world,” said. Zuckerberg
Breton, who is the former CEO of France Telecom, now Orange and the European commissioner for internal market told Zuckerberg that the EU could further pile regulation on the tech giant with respect to things like market power.
