High Tech is the Real China Threat
The welcome news emerging from the G20 meeting in Argentina this month was that China and the United States had agreed to a truce in the escalating trade war the two sides have been fighting for the last year.

Yet a more worrisome question is what will become of the longer-term economic rivalry between the two. For the United States, the trend lines are troubling, particularly as China works methodically to become the world’s technology leader. China’s rise as a technological powerhouse isn’t just a threat to U.S. national pride or jobs—it is becoming a big concern as well for the U.S. military. In some critical industries, the battle for technological dominance is a battle the United States is already losing.

“Say you’re making the latest generation of a helicopter, and you want flat-panel displays for the cockpit. Where do they come from? From Asia. They all come from two time zones in Asia,” says Willy Shih, a Harvard economist who studies technology and manufacturing. “I’d say 70 percent of the world’s semiconductor foundry capacity is in three science parks in Taiwan. All of the small optical sensors come from Asia. Touchscreens—from Asia. Camera components, optical components—Asia.”

Additionally, the Defense report found that there are other areas that are threatened, including machine tools, composite materials, and printed circuit boards. About 90 percent of the world’s printed circuit boards are made in Asia, with more than half made in China—while the “U.S. printed circuit board sub-sector is aging, constricting, and failing to maintain the state of the art.”

Chinese dominance in making high-tech equipment doesn’t necessarily constitute a national security crisis. But the fear is that if tensions with China were to escalate, China could cut off the supply of critical U.S. military components. Recent sparring between the United States and China over technology equipment companies such as Huawei and ZTE reflects U.S. worries that China could try to gain a military advantage by designing electrical components that it secretly controls. In 2010, the U.S. Navy bought 59,000 computer chips destined for helicopters that were discovered to be counterfeits containing a “Trojan horse” or “kill switch” flaw that would have allowed an enemy to render the helicopter’s weapons inoperable. In October of this year, Bloomberg Businessweek reported that the Chinese military had secretly inserted microchips the size of a grain of rice on server motherboards made in China that wound up in the mainframes of nearly 30 companies, including Apple, for the purpose of conducting industrial espionage.

Deng Xiaoping once famously counseled his countrymen to “hide our capacities and bide our time”—a nod to playing the long game for which China is famous. For the last few decades, China has followed Deng’s advice, ramping up its manufacturing capacity with the help of state subsidies, foreign investment, and cheap labor. For years, China was thought of as the world’s factory floor, exporting cheap sneakers, T-shirts, and plastic toys around the globe. Lately, though, China has set its sights on higher-tech industries. Its “Made in China 2025” plan calls for rapid development in 10 high-tech fields including robotics, artificial intelligence, telecommunications, and aerospace engineering.
