This is the June 4, 2019 hearing titled "Confronting Threats from China: Assessing Controls on Technology and Investment, and Measures to Combat Opioid Trafficking," held before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. From the opening statement of Mike Crapo: "Today, June 4th, is the 30th anniversary of China's brutal Communist Government authoritarian crackdown on unarmed civilian protesters in Tiananmen Square, dashing a pro-democracy movement's highest hope for reforms. That image of a young man standing in front of a row of rolling tanks is an indelible reminder of the true character and intentions of the Government in China that today is pursuing Made in China 2025, the most ambitious, unorthodox industrial policy program in the history of the world. The Made in 2025 program aims to shift China's economy into higher-value sectors such as those associated with robotics, aerospace, and artificial intelligence, more generally." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kevin Wolf, Scott Kennedy, and Richard Nephew.
