From the Background: "The Attorney General's Initiative reflects the Department's strategic priority of countering Chinese national security threats and reinforces the President's overall national security strategy. The Initiative is launched against the background of previous findings by the Administration concerning China's practices. In March 2018, the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative announced the results of a months' long investigation of China's trade practices under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974. It concluded, among other things, that a combination of China's practices are unreasonable, including its outbound investment policies and sponsorship of unauthorized computer intrusions, and that '[a] range of tools may be appropriate to address these serious matters.' In June 2018, the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy issued a report on 'How China's Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States and the World,' documenting 'the two major strategies and various acts, policies, and practices Chinese industrial policy uses in seeking to acquire the intellectual property and technologies of the world and to capture the emerging high-technology industries that will drive future economic growth.'"
