USA: Other Chinese companies are said to be blacklisted


A few weeks before his successor Joe Biden takes office, US President Donald Trump is further fueling the dispute between the US and China, according to insiders. The Trump administration is considering blacklisting chipmaker SMIC and oil and gas producer CNOOC on suspected Chinese military companies, three people familiar with the matter told Reuters today.

The list also includes China Construction Technology and China International Engineering Consulting. SMIC said it has continued to be “constructive and open with the US government,” and that its products and services are for civil and commercial use only.

“The company has no relationship with the Chinese military and does not manufacture for military end users.” The US Department of Defense, the Chinese Embassy in Washington and CNOOC did not immediately respond to requests for comments. Biden’s transition team declined to comment.
