The era of the big "Peaceful Rise" lie is over. The entire world sees China under the CCP for what it is.

This means American will not get cheap, Chinese goods,China ought too stop sending shoes to Japan

Whatever will a country do without China tat.

The desperate drama queen attitude against China of US is funny and pathetic..

Now let's jump up and down at Taiwan's presdient visiting the US, or water being released at Fukushima, or subs being bought by Australia.

and why do you think many major corporations are moving production from China to India, Vietnam , Indonesia. Chinas not the only country with cheap labor

Very happy to see this. Without ASML’s and TEL’s latest technologies, China will never be able to catch up.

China's government debt to GDP is 45%, but its GDP per capita is less than $20,000 and has basically stopped growing. China will not be able to afford to develop their own industry without foreign help (tech transfer).

So with huge amount of government debt pouring into decoupling fears, China will go broke without domestic consumption to generate tax receipts.

Decoupling is a risk that will make China aware, finally, that it will cost the CCP their existence, or Chinese people existence.

They can't pour money into indigenous chips, airliners, chemicals, green tech, weapons, infrastructures etc...without paying it all back.

Keep decoupling, at least we all know it's got the attention of the CCP.

You mean, up until now, they just sent them ANYWHERE ? ...like say, Iran (for drones)?

In response, Beijing filed a dispute with the World Trade Organization

Oh, "filed a dispute". No threats to obliterate U.S. No threats at it seems. The only nation not playing the "threat" game...

What country threatens obliteration over an economic or trade issue? Get real.

Not really sure what this even means. Who is jumping?

This is wishful thinking. The limiting factor of commercial semiconductor development has always been financial risk rather than pure technical knowledge. There are very few secrets in the semiconductor industry where every innovation is meticulously documented in patents. The question is not whether China can produce equally advanced semiconductors (they definitely can with enough money), but whether those chips can be exported globally due to patent infringement.

Until now, Chinese industry has had no incentive to join the semiconductor race because its consumer electronic brands are not globally competitive. The risk of a chip embargo is that it gives the Chinese government an incentive to invest billions into an advanced semiconductor industry which didn't previously exist.

Like most of the schemes that our politicians come up with, I expect this one to also backfire spectacularly in 5-10 years.

The ministry will now solicit public opinion on the measures, which are expected to come into force from July.

Going through the useless motions to give the pen pushers some work-a joke!

I would like to see Keidanren's reaction to this one. For Corporate Japan it's going to be one of those wink, wink, nudge, nudge situations. Say the right things, don't do anything blatant and find a way to continue making sales.
