US considers new export restrictions on China
Updated: 2005-07-29 13:53

The Bush administration is going to impose stricter restrictions on exporting American technologies and products to China, as Washington is getting increasingly nervous about non-stop Chinese rises on the world stage.

The U.S. Commerce Department is reportedly preparing to issue rules by the end of 2005, that would impose stricter limits on exports of American civilian technology that, allegedly, also has military uses, like aircraft parts, computer chips and machine tools, said Peter Lichtenbaum, the department's acting under secretary for industry and security, the International Herald Tribune reported.

¡°They¡¯re heading for a clash,¡± the Bloomberg News quoted US trade expert Edmund Rice as saying.

"U.S. industry is integrating with China, but the Bush administration is taking steps that are taking U.S. policy in a virtually opposite direction," said Rice, the president of the US Coalition for Employment Through Exports, which represents companies like Boeing.

The new export rules would expand restrictions on items that are considered ¡°sensitive,¡± Lichtenbaum said.

They include semiconductors made by Intel, chip-making equipment sold by Advanced Micro Devices, planes made by Boeing, aircraft parts from Honeywell International and machine tools made by companies like Gleason, according to U.S. Commerce Department documents.
