China evaluating impact from US proposal to boost tech export control
[BEIJING] China is evaluating the potential impact from a US proposal to increase control over technology exports, and will take the necessary steps to uphold Chinese firms' legitimate interests, a spokesman at the commerce ministry said on Thursday.
On Monday, the US government proposed stepping up scrutiny over technology exports in 14 key high-tech areas including artificial intelligence and microprocessor technology, a move that many analysts view as directly targeting China.
A 30-day public consultation period on the proposal to include those sectors in its broader export control regime is underway and will end on Dec 19, according to a document published on the US government's Federal Register on Monday.
