Chinese drone maker DJI and genetic technology company BGI have been blacklisted by the U.S. Department of Defense.The U.S. Department of Defense said in a statement that it has blacklisted some companies in order to combat China’s “military-civilian integration strategy.” The U.S. Department of Defense believes that the “military-civilian integration strategy” refers to the illegal acquisition of technology and expertise by the PLA through certain Chinese companies, universities, research groups and other organizations in order to acquire advanced technologies.
As early as last June, the U.S. Department of Defense announced the first batch of Chinese companies related to the Chinese military, and this time it is the second batch. A total of 13 Chinese companies were named. These include: DJI, BGI, Zhejiang Dahua, China National Chemical Corporation, China National Chemical Engineering Corporation, China State Construction Engineering Corporation, etc.
Since the passage of the U.S. National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021, the U.S. Department of Defense has explicitly required the U.S. Department of Defense to blacklist companies that have close ties to the Chinese military or are actively involved in the PLA’s “military-civilian integration.” The U.S. Department of Commerce may sanction blacklisted companies and restrict U.S. companies from doing business and investing with blacklisted companies.
