China to set up system to
safeguard technology security

BEIJING: China plans to establish a system to ensure “national security” in technology, state media reported Saturday amid an expanding trade war with the United States which has snared Chinese tech titan Huawei, reports AFP.

The powerful National Development and Reform Commission has been tasked with establishing a list system to “more effectively forestall and defuse national security risks,” the Xinhua news agency said. Xinhua did not elaborate or state whether the move was linked to the trade war but said “detailed measures will be unveiled in the near future”.  

Washington and Beijing resumed their trade battle last month when trade talks in the US ended without a deal and US President Donald Trump raised tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods, which Beijing retaliated to with its own tariff hike on billions worth US goods.
