What They're Saying

U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH)

"Further postponement of the Section 232 investigation will invite a growing deluge of steel imports into the U.S. and cause even greater damage to the U.S. steel sector.”

U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer

"The sheer scale of [China’s] coordinated efforts to develop their economy…and to distort markets in China and throughout the word is a threat to the world trading system that is unprecedented.”

Dr. James Mulvenon, General Manager, Special Programs Division, SOS International

"...the number of examples where China has successfully avoided U.S. regulatory regimes to prevent technology transfer harmful U.S. national security are increasing. The Chinese are learning our system, identifying its gaps and weaknesses, and finding new ways to exploit American technology to their advantage."

U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)

"By exploiting gaps in the existing CFIUS review process, potential adversaries, such as China, have been effectively degrading our country’s military technological edge by acquiring, and otherwise investing in, U.S. companies."

James Lewis, Senior Vice President, Center for Strategic and International Studies

“China’s goal is to end its dependence on foreign technology and overtake the U.S., as it has overtaken other nations.”

CRRC once again offered the lowest bid for manufacturing railcars . . . but now it's in Portugal. CRRC's ties to the Chinese Communist Party, which includes anticompetitive subsidies, are a threat to any other market railcar manufacturer. @EU_Commission

CRRC's biding on more passenger railcars . . . this time in Portugal. It's now time for the @EuropeanCommiss to exercise its foreign subsidies regulation with regard to @CRRCTANGSHAN. As in Bulgaria, you can be sure the CCP is subsidizing every bid.

. @masslivenews reports: “These things are being assembled in China, and there is a lot of reworking that needs to be done.”

Across all reporting on @CRRCMACorp's troubled railcar production, there's this: Quality control is still an issue. And it's apparent when railcar shells come over from China to Springfield, MA.

On CRRC via @KeepitMadeinUSA: "While the Chinese firm claimed the bulk of the work was happening at its assembly plant in Massachusetts, there was strong evidence that most of the work actually was happening in China." @MBTA @cta @LosAngelesMetro
