U S - CHINA: Battle of the blacklists

SupChina.com

In an obvious act of retaliation against the United States government’s impending ban on technology exports to Chinese telecom giant Huawei, Xinhua reports:

China will establish a list of unreliable entities based on relevant laws and regulations, according to the Ministry of Commerce (MOC) Friday.

Foreign enterprises, organizations and individuals that do not comply with market rules, violate contracts, block or cut supplies to Chinese firms with non-commercial purposes, and seriously damage the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises, will be added to the list of unreliable entities, said Gao Feng, a spokesperson with the MOC.

Detailed measures will be announced soon, Gao said.


A Ministry of Commerce Q&A about the “unreliable entity list,” or 不可靠实体清单 bùkěkào shítǐ qīngdān, is here (in Chinese). More reporting on the new Chinese blacklist:

The Chinese Communist party’s tabloid the Global Times said US tech groups Google and Microsoft and the UK-based chip designer Arm are at risk of being included on the entity list.


China to set up ‘unreliable entity’ list after U.S. Huawei ban / Bloomberg (porous paywall)

The vague wording of the Chinese state media report opens the door for Beijing to target a broad swathe of the global tech industry — from U.S. giants like Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Qualcomm Inc. and Intel Corp. to even non-American suppliers that have cut off China’s largest technology company. Those run the gamut from Japan’s Toshiba to Britain’s Arm…

“This retaliation with Chinese characteristics is unlikely to sway the Trump Administration,’’ said Jude Blanchette, China practice lead at Crumpton Group in Arlington, Virginia, and a former Conference Board researcher in Beijing. “The only certain outcome of this hastily-created ‘entity list’ is to further convince foreign firms that the political and regulatory risk of operating in China continues to rise.”

The Rise of China-Europe Railways

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
