TOKYO -- U.S. President Joe Biden's latest executive order lists 59 Chinese companies that are banned from receiving U.S. investment due to suspected ties to defense or surveillance technology sectors.

The order prevents U.S. investment from supporting China's military-industrial complex, including military, intelligence and security research and development programs, Biden said in the order.

"I find that the use of Chinese surveillance technology outside the PRC and the development or use of Chinese surveillance technology to facilitate repression or serious human rights abuse constitute unusual and extraordinary threats," Biden said.

The president's order listed the following 59 entities as subject to prohibitions, due to take effect on August 2 at 12:01 a.m. EST. The U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control will also list the entities on its new Non-SDN Chinese Military-Industrial Complex Companies List.
