The United States government published a comprehensive package of export controls this Friday (7) which includes a ban on shipping semiconductor chips made anywhere in the world with US technology, software or machines to China. The measure aims to slow down Beijing’s technological and military advances.

This year, the US had already sent letters to major semiconductor manufacturers such as KLA, Lam Research and Applied Materials, demanding a halt to shipments of materials to Chinese factories. The restrictions were imposed through the Foreign Direct Product Rule, the same used by former President Donald Trump with China’s Huawei.

The measures could mark the biggest shift in US policy on shipping technology to China in the past three decades. “This will set the Chinese back years,” said Jim Lewis, an expert in technology and cybersecurity, in an interview with the Reuters news agency.

On Thursday (6), senior US officials declared that there is no guarantee that nations allies will implement similar measures, although dialogues in this regard are ongoing.

According to Reuters, on Saturday (8), Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Mao Ning called the resolution an abuse of trade measures aimed at reinforce the “technological hegemony” of the United States.
