PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Brian Deese, U.S. President-elect Joe Biden's choice to head the National Economic Council, says the new administration will fight for tech supremacy by rebuilding its core strengths rather than slapping restrictions on China.

Deese was speaking at the first all-digital CES, the world's biggest consumer electronics and technology expo, where tech executives and experts from around the globe were discussing how the administration of President-elect Biden might approach technology and trade issues.
