/reports/2020/08/economic-statecraft-china
The People’s Republic of China (PRC) pursues its national security objectives through a wide variety of cross-domain activities. The PRC’s legal economic statecraft activities are connected directly to China’s growing military power. China’s legal means of obtaining technology damages the technological superiority of the United States and its partners and allies. This report illustrates the pathways by which China legally acquires foreign technology and builds capabilities to support its national security objectives. These pathways include: (1) trade, (2) market access requirements, (3) overseas investment, and (4) the transfer of human capital. This report also identifies key challenges for the United States in countering China’s efforts. First, the PRC is ambitious and adapts it economic techniques to deal with changing regulatory environments. Second, the United States has multiple “leakage points” that provide avenues for the PRC to access emerging technology. Third, China offers appealing incentives that put the US and other countries as risk of technology loss. Thus, a comprehensive strategy for technology protection is needed to address China’s foreign technology acquisition.
