Secretary Ross Adds 46 Subsidiaries to Huawei “Entity List” – Grants 90-Day Window for U.S. Companies to Withdraw…

Secretary Ross explains the Commerce Department decision to add 46 new Huawei subsidiaries to the restricted entity list requiring U.S. companies to apply for temporary licenses for Huawei purchases.  Due to the potential security ramifications the Commerce Dept. is giving U.S. companies 90-days (under Temporary General Licenses) to find alternate suppliers before all commercial engagement is halted.

WASHINGTON – Today, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) of the U.S. Department of Commerce identified 46 additional Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. affiliates that require inclusion on the Entity List, as part of a routine review of all Entity Listings.

Since May, the Department has added over one hundred persons or organizations to the Entity List in connection to Huawei. The new restrictions on these affiliates are effective today, August 19th.

BIS has also announced that it will extend the Temporary General License (TGL) authorizing specific, limited engagements in transactions involving the export, reexport, and transfer of items – under the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) – to Huawei and its non-U.S. affiliates which are subject to the Entity List.

The continuation of the TGL is intended to afford consumers across America the necessary time to transition away from Huawei equipment, given the persistent national security and foreign policy threat. This license will be effective on August 19, 2019 and last an additional 90 days.

“As we continue to urge consumers to transition away from Huawei’s products, we recognize that more time is necessary to prevent any disruption,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “Simultaneously, we are constantly working at the Department to ensure that any exports to Huawei and its affiliates do not violate the terms of the Entity Listing or Temporary General License.”

Outside of the scope of the TGL, any exports, reexports, or in-country transfers of items subject to the EAR will continue to require a license granted after a review by BIS under a presumption of denial.

Huawei was added to the Entity List after the Department concluded that the company is engaged in activities that are contrary to U.S. national security or foreign policy interests, including alleged violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), conspiracy to violate IEEPA by providing prohibited financial services to Iran, and obstruction of justice in connection with the investigation of those alleged violations of U.S. sanctions, among other illicit activities.

The Bureau of Industry and Security’s mission is to advance U.S. national security and foreign policy objectives by ensuring an effective export control and treaty compliance system and promoting continued U.S. strategic technology leadership.

BIS is committed to preventing U.S.-origin items from supporting Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) projects, terrorism, or destabilizing military modernization programs. (link)

      Secretary Ross explains quite well. I do confess former confusion.

      This administration is exceptionally skilled at educating voters about the criticality of economics for a healthy cohesive society and robust national security.

      In truth, often my eyes cross while deciphering technology, admin regulations, law & trade issues. Aye, and Monetary policy too.

      never w Wilbur, no longer does my head hang in ignorant shame.

      Love his calm voice, He makes the indigestible palatable. .

        Ann, I think that part of your past confusion has been because of deliberate attempts by so called ‘experts’ to obfuscate issues with technical language. This unsavory behavior is particularly true of heinous Keynesean economists who want to drape their so-called expertise in a fog of mystery to keep people confused. Most ‘economists’ don’t want people to understand what compound interest debt slavery is (ex: never seeming to be able to get ahead of interest on credit card debt). This is on purpose.

        Every field of study has its own technical terms that are a sort of shorthand for the profession. Some people are interested and capable of making the complex understandable; Sundance is willing to do this for us when he does legal analysis. Consider people like Sundance a foreign language translator. Wilbur does this as well with econ issues.

        It’s always a pleasure to watch Wilbur with Maria. She gets ‘it’.

        So grateful that Trump has people like Wilbur going to bat for the American people. To paraphrase Joe ‘Hair Sniffer’ Biden: “It’s a big friggin’ deal.”

          I deftly avoided economics past my general survey class, taken at age 16. Lol.

          But I smelled a rat from the get go w free trade!
          A shady scheme that proposed to lift the teeming billions out of dire poverty by wage levelling. Didn’t bode well for our working classes.
          The inspirational rhetoric laid it on thick, but no novice to turgid, obtuse theory, Hardened in the stormy seas of upper academia, & field work confirmed my skepticism with Internationalist globalism. Centralisation & Concentration of power upwards, we loose.

          One would think social sciences, esp political derivatives of Marxism, would admit group deviance & social regression indicators link w economic health

          But NO, politics prevail over intellectual honesty.
          Long ago, ex of duplicitous research solemnly cited for decade by Uniparty
          assertion: open, unlimited migration does not depress hourly wages in lower income classes of US citizens.
          Citizens flight from middle America’s industrial blight to coastal urban zones does not result in raised incomes.
          From this data set,an irrational, but politically aligned posit was drawn: flooded labour markets, ie supply and demand, are null factors in wages, class mobility, etc in working & underemployed sectors. I got mad!

          Unbelievably, this sweeping conclusion was drawn from samples and factor analysis restricted to Rust Belt & LA populations.

          Nor are evolutionary traits, such as aggression, family bonding, or the built in drives of males to be providers, innovators, protectors and community stabilisers usually identified in quantitative research, as droning on about structural factors provides durable, insatiable grievance based talking points for progressives.
          Sorry, I digress, the aggravation, you know

          I’m a Hayak fan. Got it from my parents.

          Nonconformity ‘s a bit lonely in my grove , but one cannot unknow history.

    How appropriate! The Chinese are suffering death by a thousand cuts. Only President Trump would have thought of the old Chinese torture for use against them. So far, it seems to be working very well. I wonder if Chairman Xi appreciates the irony?

  10. We have categorically failed to pay attention to how our computer hardware and software is being produced. Instead, we committed John Ruskin’s error of “considering price alone.” Chinese manufacturers promise to build “for less,” and non-immigrant visa holders are much “cheaper” programmers than are American citizens.

    If Huwai is a communist state owned or state subsidized company then it is simply unfair to allow them unfettered access to free markets where the companies they are competing against are neither state owned nor state subsidized.

      A puzzling question.
      Napoleon imposed an EU protomodel. A bureaucratic lobster trap backed up with a centralised police state. The Dutch got real disgruntled about it.

      Seems to me there was a big war about it, round bout 1810-15?

    What I have seen. If you notice, ever since the trde dispute with china, the tariffs….. we have seen Iran doing its little stupid dance, then Tru-duh meeting with pelosi bemoaning his trade condumdrim, then we’ve seen the Hong Kong issue….not saying its legit, but the bill prompting this situations timing is interesting, then the massing at the borders and the violence. Something else is happening most are not aware of. Now my wife and I live in the Philippines. Since this has started, china has started its taking over of the West Philippine sea. They have run over and destroyed a Filipino fishing boat, its on video and now they are crusing their Navy warships through Philippine waters. This is a bullying tactic we have been seeing from them for 4 years. They are geting worse.

    China and other entities are trying to get POTUS to bite at the bait. I dont know what rap is being set but it very much appears china is acting as it were a cornered beast and will do whatever it has to do to get out of its corner. We have our eyes on this. Pray for peace.

      You’re right…they are definitely backed into a corner now. Many CTH readers believe that China is the fuel source for all swamp debauchery in the US and possibly the root of most Global unrest elsewhere. This could explain why PDJT seams to be content with staying out of the DOJ’s way domestically and laser focused on putting communist China out of business. After China falls, the swamp may just vaporize out of existence.🙏

I’d love to shake our SOC’s hand and give him a hug and I’d like to thank Maria for letting him speak and being one of the few Fox correspondents still asking (not interrupting) their guest’s interviews. Wow. So refreshing.
