The United States and the Netherlands are stepping up joint efforts to prevent the Chinese from having equipment for the production of chips.
Reuters news agency message about the new measures from the Netherlands and the United States to ensure that China can import as little material as possible for cooking fries.
Not with all Chinese
We have previously shared articles on the important role of chips in the US-Chinese trade dispute. Not only the Netherlands is involved, but Japan has also boarded this train.
These restrictions are now tightened a bit. A ban for specialized ASML was already expected and is now effectively in place. The Hague prohibits the Dutch company from selling chip production equipment to China. This rule also applies, of course, to similar businesses in our northern neighbours. However, the rule would not take effect until September.

In the United States, such a ban has been in place for American companies since the fall of last year. The reason is very simple, Joe Biden and co don’t want China, especially its military, to have the necessary technology.
Additionally, the US is reportedly working on a rule that would ban the export of hardware from other countries, if it contains even a minimum of US parts. This means that more restrictions will apply to China. Unlike the Netherlands, the United States does not intend to wait long, the new rules would already come into force in July.
America is not just about production equipment. They also prefer not to see the export of already produced AI chips to China.
