Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross on Thursday said new rules coming soon will put more limits on technology sales to Huawei, which American officials suspect of making gear that could be used for espionage -- an allegation the company has denied.

At issue are rules to make it harder for American companies to sell to Huawei from their overseas facilities. Some U.S. companies have kept selling to Huawei by using exemptions if the majority of work to create the products happens outside the U.S.

Huawei is getting a partial reprieve from the US trade ban. President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have reached a truce that will remove some restrictions on Huawei selling technology to the US.

The current threshold permitting sales effectively kicks in when 75% of the work occurs overseas. The administration is debating raising this to 90%.

The chip industry argues that further tightening could reduce its competitiveness and ability to innovate.

Such issues are “never black and white,” Esper said in remarks at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, but restrictions generally must consider “second- and third-order effects” on American companies and “sustaining those companies’ supply chains and those innovators.”

Three Republican senators in a letter on Friday asked Esper to explain the Defense Department’s stance. “Huawei is an arm of the Chinese Communist Party and should be treated as such,” the lawmakers said in the letter, which was distributed by email. “We are concerned that the Defense Department is not appropriately weighing the risks.”

The letter’s signers were Nebraska’s Ben Sasse, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and Marco Rubio of Florida.
