China has expressed grave concerns about Japan’s decision to restrict exports of 23 types of semiconductor manufacturing equipment, which would hamper their cooperation on the chip industry. The Chinese Ministry of Commerce has demanded that Japan immediately retract the decision, warning that otherwise, China will take “decisive measures” to protect its rights and interests.
One of the companies affected by this move from Japan is Huawei. The Chinese multinational technology giant, founded in 1987, produces consumer electronics and has expanded to the telecom industry with its smartphones as well as the semiconductor industry. Huawei is the world’s largest provider of telecommunications infrastructure, providing wireless modems and base stations to many countries. The export restrictions imposed by Japan will significantly affect Huawei’s semiconductor division.
