This is the November 19, 2019 hearing "Securing the U.S. Research Enterprise from China's Talent Recruitment Plans" held before the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Rob Portman: "America built the world's most successful research enterprise based on certain values, including collaboration, integrity, peer review, transparency, and improving the public good. The open and collaborative nature of research in America is one of the reasons we attract the best and brightest in the world. Some countries, however, have exploited America's openness to advance their own national interests. The most aggressive is China. For China, international scientific collaboration is not solely about advancing science for the global good. It is by their own admission about advancing China's national security and economic interests. They have been clear about it. China's stated goal is to be the world's leader in science and technology (S&T) by 2050. To achieve its science and technology goals, China has implemented a whole-of-government campaign to recruit talent and foreign experts from around the world. China uses more than 200 talent recruitment programs to lure foreign-trained scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs into providing China with technical know-how, expertise, and foreign technology." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John Brown, Chris Fall, Rebecca Keiser, Michael S. Lauer, and Edward J. Ramotowski.
