NTDTV Beijing time on October 30, 2019] On Tuesday (October 29), US Defense Department officials said in a Washington study that the CCP has been using the open academic research environment of the United States to steal intellectual property and technical intelligence. The United States has to strengthen its review of international students.
In the past ten years, the Chinese military has sent 2,500 scientific researchers to the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and other countries to collect technical information in the form of study abroad or cooperative research.
Michael Brown, director of the Defense Department of the US Department of Defense: “This is part of the CCP’s comprehensive system and systematic collection of technology from all over the world. Therefore, we can’t just open the warehouse door, and the CCP does not have to pay any price. So, unfortunately, we must be more Examine some students cautiously and do some basic protection.”
US Defense Department officials believe that the CCP has been using the open academic research environment of the United States for many years to steal technology. At present, one-third of international students in the United States come from China. Among the masters and doctoral students in science and engineering, Chinese students account for a quarter, and many technical espionage cases are related to these international students.
Michael Brown, Director of Defence Innovation, US Department of Defense: “I want to emphasize this practice of the CCP, especially using students as spies.”
In the past two years, the Trump administration has protected US technology and intellectual property by strengthening foreign investment review, export control, and anti-spyware work.
At present, the first phase of the US-China trade negotiations is nearing completion, which may include restrictions on forced technology transfer, but experts are not optimistic about this.
Former US Senator David Hanke: “It is unrealistic to think that trade negotiations will work.”
James Lewis, Program Director, Center for Strategic and International Studies: “China is hard to change. Under the leadership of the current leadership of the CCP, I don’t expect any change.”
Reporter: “Compulsory technology transfer is a core issue in US-China trade disputes. Experts believe that no matter how the CCP commits, it will be difficult to fulfill.
