The United States Expresses Great Disappointment in China’s Ban on Micron


China's Ban on Micron

In recent news, we reported that China has banned sales of some Micron products in the country. This ban came after investigating the American memory chip manufacturing company in April. Many have interpreted this ban as a tit-for-tat response from China in light of the ongoing trade war with the United States.

The United States Aims to Address China’s Ban on Micron China's Ban on Micron

In light of this, the United States has expressed its disappointment in China for taking this action against Micron. The secretary of the U.S Commerce Department, Gina Raimondo spoke about this last Saturday. She said the United States was not going to tolerate such an action from China. Hence, they are working closely with Allies to address such an “economic coercion”.

The United States “won’t tolerate” China’s effective ban on purchases of Micron Technology memory chips. And is working closely with allies to address such “economic coercion, she said.

Raimondo made this statement during a news conference. This came after meeting with trade ministers in the U.S.-led Indo-Pacific Economic Framework talks. At the conference, Raimondo stated that the U.S firmly opposes China’s action against Micron.

These “target a single U.S. company without any basis. In fact, and we see it as plain and simple economic coercion and we won’t tolerate it. Nor do we think it will be successful,” she added.

Why Did China Ban Micron? China's Ban on Micron

In May 21, China’s cyberspace regulator said Micron has failed its network security review. For this reason, it was going to block operators of key infrastructure from purchasing from the U.S biggest memory chip maker. This announcement led Micron to anticipate a drop in its revenue.

China’s move came a day after G7 industrial democracies reached an agreement to implement new initiatives to counter economic coercion by China. This decision was also noted by Raimondo in her statement.

“As we said at the G7 and as we have said consistently, we are closely engaging with partners addressing this specific challenge and all challenges related to China’s non-market practices,” she said.

Raimondo Also Spoke About China’s Ban on Micron in a Meeting with China Trade Minister

On Thursday, Raimondo had a meeting with China’s trade minister, Wang Wentao. At the meeting, Raimondo raised the Micron Ban issue. She said that the agreement reached within the IPEF which regards supply chain and other areas aligns with the investments made by the U.S in the CHIPS act. This act refers to a $52 billion investment by the United States. The investment is meant to promote and support domestic semiconductor production within the U.S.

“The investments in the CHIPS Act are to strengthen and bolster our domestic production of semiconductors. Having said that, we welcome participation from companies that are in IPEF countries. You know, so we expect that companies from Japan, Korea, Singapore, etc. will participate in the CHIPS Act funding,” Raimondo said.

How will China’s Ban on Micron Affect the Company’s Market Share and Revenue?

Micron has already indicated that it expects a revenue drop due to this ban. The company anticipates a lower to higher percentage drop in its revenue.

Even though this ban applies to large Chinese companies such as banks and telecom companies, this ban can go the long way to affect Micron’s brand image in China. For this reason, the company may see lower demand than it has anticipated.

    I rarely write reviews, but I had to for this! Because I tried several apps to help with no luck. Back then, I was very confused and always felt awful about my partner’s cheating attitude. I really wanted to track and catch him red-handed. I downloaded this app hoping it would help but I wasn’t satisfied with its features as I needed to monitor my partner closely. I then spoke with a trusted colleague of mine at work and she gave me a genuine recommendation about an ethical private investigator named Christopher Kim, I wrote to his email at WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM explaining how I wanted to have a complete access to his call log, iMessage/SMS, social media activities, gallery, texts, deleted or not, his precise location day in day out. I paid for his services and in about 2-3 hours, I had complete access to his phone. I got concrete evidence. it was unbelievable to see the evidence of cheating on me. Who likes to live with a cheater, I used the evidence I got to file for a divorce. I’m thankful to Chris for helping me out of my dilemma and suspicions. His services are highly rated and affordable. If you are having trust issues and need valid evidence, how about you contact WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM? Thank you Chris for an incredible job !!
