China responded with “resolute opposition” and “strong dissatisfaction” to a new US bill signed into law last week, which includes a provision that requires NASA and the justice and commerce departments to seek approval from federal law enforcement officials before buying information technology systems from China, Reuters reported. The bill reflects US concern with cyber-espionage from China after a string of supposed China-backed hacker attacks on US companies and government agencies.

US “advanced technology” imports from China are worth about US$129 billion, according to a May 2012 report by the US Congressional Research Service.
