The United States Security Challenges Issues With China Technology
The United States is with China. We need to think bigger, maybe better. Because we can cooperate with China, as this administration has shown that I expect a phase one trade agreement to be signed with China. This is a fantastic thing, We welcome it more, but we have to honestly face tough questions about the national security consequences of doing business in a country controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. This especially goes for companies that develop some of our most sensitive technology, as do many in this field. There is a reason for so many hackers and thieves - like A.P.T. The 10 groups are linked to the Chinese Ministry of Security. Under Jinping, the CCP has given priority to something called "military-civilian fusion". Many of you know this. It is a technical term but a very simple idea. Under Chinese law, Chinese companies and researchers should share technology with the Chinese military. But I would like to remind each of you as Americans citizens of an independent nation, that it is increasing the threat from Chinese actions which can greatly reduce the freedom that you have to create and build your business. It is not going to sound an alarm. It is not threatening. It is for all that we should be aware. Now we see China for what it is, not what we want it to be. This has happened on both sides of the political aisle, and American companies have also rallied for patriotic reasons. It has a long history in the United States. Any of you who have read history will remember that the so-called "arsenal of democracy," also known as American manufacturing, was essential to our victory in World War II. President Trump called China's theft and predator Action is taken to counter economic practices. He is demanding respect and reciprocity. This is going to be the very week when we sign the first part of a business deal. He knows that economic security is the core of my mission set to protect each of you, to provide national security. And we have export controls on parts that go into the CCP's nationwide surveillance machine. We have implemented a lot of scrutiny for technology exports that may have military use. We have dramatically reduced the nuclear technology share with China, even for nominally peaceful purposes. Our government agencies are trying to prevent new forces from using their own innovation against us. Cooperating in ways. And we are giving notice to our partners about the huge security and privacy risks associated with building a 5G network with Huawei Chinese company. Furthermore, protecting America's innovation, We will do our part in the government and we will continue our enforcement. You should know that we are on your side. But defending freedom and national security is not just the government's job, It is for each and every citizen.
