TAIPEI -- The U.S. views it as essential for countries to set up screening systems for foreign investments in the 5G era, a senior State Department official told the Nikkei Asian Review on a trip to Taiwan.

"This concept that investment should be screened in this era and should be thought about in terms of impact on society, on a country or an economy is an important one," David Meale, deputy assistant secretary for trade policy and negotiations, said in an interview last week at America's de facto embassy in Taipei.
