The restrictions imposed more than a week ago by the United States authorities not only related to the supply of equipment to China, but also to the ability of US citizens and people with Green Cards to continue to work for Chinese companies suspected of being involved in the development of dual-use technologies.
However, the Secretary-General of the Chinese Communist Party of China, Xi Jingping, stated at another congress of the political organization that the PRC would "produce a legion" of gifted professionals to develop its own advanced technologies. Literally, as the head of the Chinese State stated, similar practices in the semi-conductive sector of the PRC had been extended since local producers often recruited foreign-born companies, many of whom were American-born, or had obtained citizenship or residence permits while working in their former jobs.
By way of example, Bloomberg is a promising Chinese manufacturer of Piotech chips. Six of the seven top developers in the company are U.S. citizens, like many management representatives. The ban on continuing their work in China is not irreversible, it is simply the U.S. citizens themselves who will have to obtain a special permit, and Chinese companies will have to prove in turn that they are not involved in the development of dual-use technologies and goods.
Foreign companies have already begun to withdraw their United States personnel from Chinese client projects, thus receiving ASML, and in some cases the initiative also came from Chinese companies using foreign contractors.
