Faraday Future founder files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy

  Faraday Future founder files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Faraday Future founder Jia Yueting has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a bid to settle his exorbitant personal debts. The move is part of a larger recovery plan, and it's meant, in part, to regain credibility for Faraday Future. Though there's no guarantee that it will help. In the proposed plan, Yueting will use his ownership stake in the long-troubled, cash-strapped EV startup Faraday Future to create a creditor trust and repay his debts. That's not a total surprise.

Propaganda in China refers to the use of propaganda by the Communist Party of China to sway domestic and international opinion in favor of its policies.

"The Cold War thinking and zero sum game, this has stopped and hindered exchanges in cyberspace. Also, bully behavior in cyberspace has had a negative impact on mutual trust," he said.

"By using national security as an excuse, some countries have attacked some countries and enterprises. This has increased the uncertainty, opposition and negativity in cyberspace."

The state-run World Internet Conference, one of the country's most prominent tech conferences, takes place this year against a backdrop of rising U.S.-China tensions that has especially overshadowed the tech sector.

Washington has barred U.S. firms from exporting to certain Chinese tech companies through trade blacklists and the two countries have slapped tit-for-tat tariffs on each other in a intensifying trade war, which has also hit tech supply chains.

China and the United States can compete but should not view each other with a Cold War mentality and should avoid falling into a zero-sum game trap.

China has traditionally used the three-day event, whose attendees this year include Alibaba Group, Baidu Inc , Microsoft Corp and Qualcomm Inc, to promote its own ideology for global internet governance and defend its highly-policed cyberspace.

China has been pushing for a bigger role in global internet governance and has called on nations to respect Beijing's "cyber sovereignty," the idea that countries should be free to control and censor their internet infrastructure as they see fit.

The annual conference is organized by internet censorship bureau, the Cyberspace Administration of China, which is responsible for managing China's tight controls over its cyberspace that prevents users in the country from accessing services from the likes of Facebook and Google.
