US Congress Considers Bills to Boost Competition with China

“China is upset with efforts to increase export restrictions on US goods, block Chinese companies from accessing certain US goods, and restrict some direct investments in China,” Doug Barry, a senior director with the US-China Business Council, told VOA in an email exchange. “They worry about incentives to relocate production of some critical goods back to the US. At the same time, China is working to reduce dependence on certain goods like advanced semiconductors, while slow-walking promised market access reform and opening,” Barry said.
