China Tech Threat’s Statement on Alan Estevez’s Nomination Hearing Today

“Mr. Estevez’s testimony today provided welcome clarity regarding how he would use the full arsenal of BIS tools to counter China’s anticompetitive and unfair practices, human rights abuses, and tactics to maneuver around our nation’s regulatory structures,” said China Tech Threat Co-Founder Dr. Roslyn Layton. “His stated commitment to use the authority granted by the Export Control Reform Act, commitment to produce to Congress the required lists of foundational and emerging technologies, defense of U.S. Intellectual Property, and his willingness to consider unilateral controls should give senators the confidence they need that confirming Estevez brings a solid leader who will ensure security at the Bureau of Industry and Security.”
