New China export rule hits US AI chipmakers – BBC


The US government requires a new licence, effective immediately, to address the risk of AI chips being used in, or diverted to a ‘military end use’ in China and Russia”, reports the BBC.

There are fears the rule could lead to millions of dollars in lost revenue.

Chinese officials have firmly opposed the latest move, reports the BBC. Chinese state media claims that, “actions from the United States deviated from the principle of fair competition and violated international economic and trade rules”.

Beijing said in a recent statement, “The US side should immediately stop its wrongdoing, treat companies from all over the world including Chinese companies fairly, and do more things that are conducive to the stability of the world economy.”

The US Commerce Department told the BBC it was “not in a position to outline specific policy changes at this time”.
