The US has added seven Chinese supercomputing companies to the entity list.

The US-China rivalry is one and it has reached to technological aspects as well. It has already banned several Chinese companies from cyber allegations. In addition to that, seven companies have been further added to the list to block them.

The newly added entities that are companies include the Shanghai High-Performance Integrated Circuit Design Center, Sunway Microelectronics, Tianjin Phytium Information Technology. The remaining organizations are the National Supercomputing Centers in Jinan, Shenzhen, WuXi, and Zhengzhou. The ban will disable the companies from buying parts and components from the US.

According to the department, these entities are involved with building supercomputers used as part of China’s military efforts to destabilize military modernization efforts and build weapons of mass destruction programs.

The newest Entity List additions are the latest among many that the US has made against Chinese businesses, including Huawei, which was placed on the Entity List almost two years ago. In addition to placing various Chinese companies on the Entity List, the US government has also enforced other restrictions on Chinese technology companies by labeling them as national security threats.

The reasons for doling out these restrictions have ranged from preventing China’s alleged efforts of destabilizing military activities, to standing up against the repression of Uyghur Muslims and other Muslim ethnic minorities within China, to spy.
