The U.S. Export Controls On Macau Further Restricts The CCP’s Access To Chips

On January 17, the Biden administration imposed the same chip export restrictions on Macau, as it did on mainland China, over concerns that high-end chips and chip manufacturing equipment will be transferred to other parts of China through Macau, undermining US efforts to prevent China from obtaining chip technology. Macau is the special administrative region of Communist China.


On October 7, 2022, the Bureau of Industry and Security of the U.S. Department of Commerce updated the Export Control Regulations to prohibit all “Americans” from supporting China’s factories to develop or produce advanced chips without a license. A former U.S. Department of Commerce official explained that “Americans” here would include people with U.S. passports and green cards, as well as U.S. companies. In its latest bulletin, the BIS said that by extending export controls imposed on China to Macau, the United States would more effectively achieve the policy goals identified in previous regulations. The new rules came into effect on January 17, 2023.


It was reported that the CCP has spent huge sums of money in recent years in an attempt to promote the development of chips in the country. But most of the world’s chip technology and basic theories come from the United States. The CCP’s efforts have ultimately come to naught.
