Washington, D.C. – House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul has released the following statement on the Biden administration’s decision to start a working group aimed at addressing economic and commercial issues with China, including export controls. 

“The Biden administration’s decision to join forces with the Chinese Communist Party to establish a working group on export controls and commercial issues with CCP officials is at best naive, but also dangerous. The CCP steals U.S. intellectual property and hacks the emails of senior government officials — including Secretary Raimondo. The administration must stop treating the CCP as anything other than an adversary who will stop at nothing to harm our national security and spread its malign authoritarianism around the globe.”
