Steve Yates Commends the House Select Committee on China’s Economic Vision
WASHINGTON, D.C. – the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) released the following statement from Steve Yates, Chair of the China Policy Initiative at AFPI, welcoming the release of a comprehensive economic report by the bipartisan House Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP):
“The evidence is overwhelming that decades of unchecked CCP economic aggression have had a devastating impact on U.S. economic and trade interests. It has been both a disaster for the American people and an overwhelming indictment of the misguided establishment approach of uncritical engagement with the CCP.
This report is a crucial downpayment on resetting the terms of the U.S. economic relationship with the CCP, prioritizing vital features such as our supply chain security, restrictions on outgoing investment in critical technology sectors, and the integrity of our intellectual property and research infrastructure. I commend the House Select Committee on China for laying this important foundation on which to build sound policy during this critical period in our bilateral relationship with the CCP—our chief global adversary.”
