A piece in Politico overnight, citing ‘two people familiar with the plans’
- Trump administration taking steps towards more restrictions on exports of high-tech goods to China
- Commerce Department to roll back regulations making it easier for U.S. companies to export certain goods that have both civilian and military purposes
- Commerce will also recommend ending a general policy of approving export licenses for that group of goods if they go to civilian use and instead require reviews on a case-by-case basis
- The expected moves would make it harder for China to acquire U.S. technology.
