Washington, D.C. - Congresswoman Elise Stefanik announced that following her advocacy the Biden Administration revoked export licenses that allowed American company Intel to supply Communist Chinese spy company Huawei with semiconductors. This action will disrupt the supply of U.S. technology for Huawei’s laptop computers and mobile phones.

“Following my oversight, the Department of Commerce has finally responded to Congressional Republicans' repeated demands to revoke export licenses for any U.S. company that exports to known Communist Chinese spy company, Huawei. This action will bolster U.S. national security, protect American ingenuity, and diminish Communist China’s ability to advance its technology. However, our work is far from finished,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. “I will continue to conduct critical oversight to ensure that the Bureau of Industry and Security takes its role as a national security agency seriously by adding more companies to the entity list and revoking additional licenses if needed. We cannot provide Communist China with any technology developed in the U.S. that would give them an advantage.”

Last month, Congresswoman Stefanik led a letter to Department of Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo urging the Biden Administration to immediately revoke all export licenses to Communist Chinese spy company Huawei after Huawei announced that it will be using new technology developed by American company Intel in their latest computers.
