Rubio Calls Punishing Tiandy The “Right Thing To Do”

Dec 15, 2022 | Press Releases

Chinese Communist Party-controlled technology companies are a threat to American national security. The U.S. Department of Commerce rightly included Tiandy, YMTC, PXW, and others on the Bureau of Industry and Security’s Entity List.
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released a statement urging the Biden Administration to do even more.

  • “The Chinese Communist Party is weaponizing technology companies to further its geopolitical goals. Adding Tiandy, PXW, and YMTC to the Entity List is the right thing to do. Unfortunately, many more problematic Chinese companies remain unsanctioned. The Department of Commerce needs to be more aggressive in using all available tools to identify and punish bad actors.” — Senator Rubio 

Flashback … Rubio called on the Biden Administration to investigate YMTC in September, PXW in October, and Tiandy earlier this month.
Looking forward … Rubio will continue to press the Biden Administration to enforce the Foreign Direct Product Rule (FDPR), which currently “target[s] Huawei’s acquisition of semiconductors that are the direct product of certain U.S. software and technology.” As Rubio and Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) noted earlier this year, YMTC appears to be helping Huawei evade U.S. sanctions.
