[Global Times - Global News reporter Ni Hao] China's Ministry of Commerce spokesman Gao Gao Gao responded at a news conference on the afternoon of the 9th on a new U.S. measure to control the export of AI software. Peak said that in today's deep development of economic globalization, restricting and interfering with normal international cooperation will not only harm the interests of relevant enterprises, including American enterprises, but also cause market concerns about the trade and investment environment and innovation environment of the United States, and affect the stability of the international industrial chain.
The summit believes that science should be borderless and that scientific and technological progress should benefit the people of the world. China's scientific and technological progress has been achieved under the condition of opening up through the unremitting struggle of generations of people themselves. China will adhere to the road of independent innovation and be more open to the outside world.It is ready to strengthen cooperation with other countries, promote scientific and technological innovation, share scientific and technological achievements, work together to solve the difficult problems of human development and jointly benefit the people of other countries.
Gao said he hoped the US side would correct the erroneous practice of generalizing national security and abusing export control measures to create favorable conditions for enterprises to carry out normal trade and cooperation.
The Commerce Department's Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) reportedly issued new export controls on Wednesday, requiring U.S. companies to obtain permission to export some geospatial image software overseas from January 6(with the exception of Canada). Target recognition software (civil or military) for intelligent sensors, drones, satellites, and other automation devices is within limits. Foreign media believe the measure points directly to several countries, including China.
