CTT’s Statement on Tomorrow’s Estevez Hearing

“It has been four years since the Senate Banking Committee last confirmed a BIS Under Secretary, which is why tomorrow’s confirmation hearing is a pivotal moment for our nation’s effectiveness in leveraging strategic trade controls as U.S.-China relations continue to escalate,” said China Tech Threat Co-Founder Dr. Roslyn Layton. “While we value the strong national security and defense technology expertise Alan Estevez brings with him, we expect focused and detailed questions by Committee members to better understand Mr. Estevez’s point of view on China, the threat posed by its military civil fusion strategy and how BIS should act to protect national security.”
