China took advantage of launch of new measures to protect privacy and personal data – for better once again denounce the American "harassment" of Chinese companies. Indeed, the United States has continued to tighten sanctions against Huawei and other Chinese groups – which increasingly threatens their future and ambitions. Huawei, for example, can no longer preinstall Google applications on its smartphones, and recently lost the supplier TSMC which made the most advanced Kirin chips. Tik Tok and the social network WeChat are also threatened with ban in the United States.

The US Department of Commerce has managed to give a extra-territorial dimension to its sanctions by threatening firms around the world that depend on US technologies. Those who resist risk losing access to the technologies they need – in the event that they continue to have commercial ties with Chinese companies targeted by sanctions. A particularly risky game in high-tech industry, especially semiconductors. Because founders depend heavily on tools made in the United States for the most advanced engraving processes.

"Some countries pursue aggressive unilateralism, throwing mud at other countries under the guise of 'cleansing', and carrying out global persecutions on leading companies in other countries under the guise of security.", deplored Wang Yi, State Councilor of the People's Republic of China. And to add: " this is pure harassment and must be opposed and rejected" . The new initiative launched in the wake calls among other things Chinese companies not to create backdoors or backdoors in their products.

This will cut short the argument that Chinese firms are practicing mass espionage on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. Wang Yi also calls for "New comprehensive data security rules which reflect the wishes of all countries and respect the interests of all parties are decided on the basis of universal participation by all parties." BBC states thata similar American initiative, called The Clean Network, was also launched last month. About 30 countries and territories have joined the initiative, according to the US State Department.
