This is the April 26, 2017 hearing on "China's Technological Rise: Challenges to U.S. Innovation and Security" held before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Subcommittee Chairman Ted S. Yoho: "China's growth as a technological powerhouse is one of a number of momentous changes taking place in the U.S.-China relationship. Some changes are driven by pressing threats, like North Korea's belligerence and the resulting close communications between President Trump and President Xi. Others like the President's executive order on steel imports are simply the result of our change in administration. [...] China is relentlessly pursuing long-term degradation of U.S. strategic and economic interests through its high-tech policies. As China has risen, it has not integrated itself into the existing rules and structures for global leadership and trade as many have hoped. [...] China is the world's second largest economy, but in pursuing dominance in high-tech sectors, it regularly violates or disregards the practices that have contributed to global economic growth. The emerging strategic commons of cyberspace and outer space are critical for global security". Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Dean Cheng, Robert D. Atkinson, and Robert E. Scott.
