US DOJ UNVEILS NEW INITIATIVE AIMED AT IDENTIFYING PRIORITY CHINESE TRADE THEFT CASES

On 2nd November, Thompson Hine LLP published an article saying that on 1st November the US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the creation of a “China Initiative” aimed at identifying priority Chinese trade theft cases for investigation and enforcement.  A factsheet from the DoJ outlines the aims of the initiative, and in this it is said that, in addition to identifying and prosecuting those engaged in trade secret theft, hacking and economic espionage, the initiative will increase efforts to protect critical infrastructure against external threats including foreign direct investment, supply chain threats and the foreign agents seeking to influence the US public and policymakers without proper registration.
