Prohibition of transactions with companies using high-tech products in the United States of China Enforcement in August July 6:53, July 17


The US government has decided to enact a law on August 13 that bans transactions with companies that use the products of five Chinese high-tech companies such as Huawei. The increasingly fierce US-China conflict will involve countries around the world, including Japan.

The U.S. Trump administration bans the procurement and use of products by five high-tech companies, such as Huawei in China and Haik Vision, a surveillance camera manufacturer, in government agencies under the Defense Authority Act to protect confidential information. Has decided to implement the measures to extend the exclusion of Chinese products to countries around the world on the 13th of next month.

This measure makes it impossible for companies that use the products and services of the target companies to enter into business contracts with and renew business with US government agencies. Which of the Chinese companies to choose will be a pressing one.

Even in Japan, many companies, including telecommunications companies, deal with target Chinese companies, so there is concern about the impact.

Relations between the United States and China have deteriorated further over the problems of the new coronavirus and Hong Kong, but this conflict will involve countries around the world.
