- Asian Politics · Politics · China · Beijing · United States of America

Bei­jing, China – China has passed a new law re­strict­ing sen­si­tive ex­ports to pro­tect na­tional se­cu­rity, a move that adds to pol­icy tools it could wield against the US as ten­sions - es­pe­cially in tech­nol­ogy - con­tinue to rise.

The law, which China's top leg­is­la­ture passed on Satur­day, comes into ef­fect on De­cem­ber 1 and al­lows Bei­jing to 'take re­cip­ro­cal mea­sures' against coun­tries that abuse ex­port con­trols and pose a threat to na­tional se­cu­rity.

Tech­ni­cal data re­lated to items cov­ered will also be sub­ject to ex­port con­trols, ac­cord­ing to the pub­lished text of the law.
