Jerusalem [Israel] March 15 (ANI): China’s chip manufacturing, rife with intellectual property theft and unfair trade practices, poses a major threat to global security and the country’s efforts to use advanced chips to train artificial intelligence must be curbed, The Times of Israel reported.
According to the Times of Israel, the United States has rightfully stepped up its competition with China in the semiconductor industry last year. The CHIPS and Science Act signed by the Biden administration in August is a necessary industrial policy to ensure that the United States maintains its technological edge and protects its supply chain.

The restrictions rolled out by the Biden administration in October are therefore a logical response to China’s predatory behavior in the industry.
Despite the sanctions, the Biden administration has failed to offer Beijing a viable exit strategy to end the tech war. This is because the Chinese government has shown no willingness to improve its trade practices or respect intellectual property rights. The fact that the Chinese government has raised supply chain security to its highest priority is further evidence of its nefarious intentions in the semiconductor industry, according to The Times of Israel.

China’s 20th Party Congress report shows the determination of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to prioritize national security over market innovation. The report comes days after the U.S. announced the latest semiconductor export controls.
The report identified the Sino-US trade conflict as the “main economic battlefield”, and vowed to achieve “high-tech self-improvement and self-reliance” by overcoming technological bottlenecks and winning the battle for core technologies.
According to the Times of Israel report, the CCP’s strategy is to strengthen its leading role in scientific and technological affairs, build a new “national system” for scientific research, and strengthen the “national strategic scientific and technological strength.” However, this approach raises concerns about long-term economic distortions caused by economic planning based on security concerns rather than economic viability.
U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo recently said the U.S. has its eyes wide open to the fact that China is clearly trying to acquire U.S. technology for use in its military. “We need to protect ourselves, our allies and partners from this situation,” she said.
In response to a question about the U.S. push to decouple technology from China and what role India will play in the global semiconductor supply chain, as well as the broader U.S. effort to decouple from China, the U.S. Commerce Secretary said, “We view India as a trusted technology partner. As a partner, we want to continue to deepen our technology relationship with India. In fact, we recently launched iCET (Critical and Emerging Technology Initiative) on critical and emerging technologies with India, and we want to work more closely with the private sector in India on those technologies. “
After that, Raimondo clarified, “I also want to be clear that the United States is not seeking to decouple from China, and we are not seeking to decouple from Chinese technology. What we seek to do is to ensure that certain technologies that the United States leads, and China’s clear The strategy is to have these technologies and deploy them in Chinese military establishments.” (Ani)
