The U.S. Department of Commerce announced January 14 it has added China’s Skyrizon Aviation to the Military End User list because it is a manufacturing conglomerate with significant ties to the PRC and the People’s Liberation Army. Skyrizon is actively seeking to acquire intellectual property and technology to advance key military capabilities that threaten U.S. national security, including the capability to develop, produce, or maintain military items, such as aircraft engines, satellites, and cruise missiles.
This MEU List addition targets Skyrizon as a proliferation risk and mitigates the unacceptable risk of U.S. exports of engine technology being transferred by Skyrizon to the PRC’s defense industry.
Skyrizon’s predatory investments and technology acquisitions in Ukraine represent an unacceptable risk of diversion to military end use in the PRC.
