Biden Adds More Chinese Semiconductor Chip Makers to Trade Blacklist

HeadlineDec 16, 2022

The Biden administration has broadened its crackdown on China’s semiconductor chip industry. On Thursday, the Commerce Department added YMTC and 21 other Chinese chip makers to a trade blacklist. The White House has accused China of blurring the line between military and civilian use of advanced semiconductors that can be used to power hypersonic missiles and other weapons. China’s ambassador to the World Trade Organization accused the U.S. of violating WTO rules, adding, “Clearly, the United States is a unilateralist and bullying hegemonist.”
