China's export control law to become 'key dynamic' in US relations
New measures bring Beijing's economic sanctions power on par with Washington's
China's new export control law will strengthen the country's control over the flow of goods, technology and services including military products, nuclear materials and items with dual uses in the civil and defense sectors.
SHANGHAI -- China's new export control law, which took effect Tuesday, aims to consolidate existing mechanisms for safeguarding the national interest in response to foreign trade pressure.
The law will strengthen Beijing's control over the flow of goods, technology and services. Subject to broad interpretation under national security, it raises concerns over additional trade barriers even as Beijing seeks trade deals with other countries.
