GUANGZHOU -- Two Chinese trade associations on Wednesday slammed the CHIPS and Science Act, arguing that the newly signed U.S. law to promote domestic chipmaking will hurt the industry elsewhere in the world. 

The law will "intensify geopolitical competition in the semiconductor industry and hinder the global economic recovery and the growth of technological innovation," said the groups, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade and the China Chamber of International Commerce.
