Heritage Foundation Hosts Program on Dual-Use Export Controls With China

Today the Washington, DC-based Heritage Foundation held a program entitled "Technology Leadership, Economic Power and National Security: Dual-Use Export Controls to China". The program featured a speech by Mario Mancuso, Undersecretary of Commerce for Industry and Security, followed by a lively panel discussion with critics and proponents of current U.S. policies on export controls to China.

The full text of Undersecretary Mancuso's speech on U.S. dual-use export controls and trade with China can be found on the BIS website.

A good summary of today's program can be found on the CNET news blog.

The video of the entire program will soon be posted on the Heritage Foundation's website.

The most newsworthy aspect of today's program was that Undersecretary Mancuso confirmed that BIS and other U.S. government agencies carefully reviewed, but ultimately rejected, the claims recently made by the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control criticizing the selection of two of the five Chinese companies named as Validated End Users (VEUs). In its report, the Wisconsin Project stated that Shanghai Hua Hong NEC Electronics Company, Ltd. and BHA Aerocomposite Parts Co., Ltd. "are affiliated closely to China’s military industrial complex and to companies that have been punished by the U.S. government for proliferation or other improper export behavior."

Undersecretary Mancuso indicated that BIS is still reviewing a number of other applications for the China VEU program.
