China Sweetens Deal With Technology Transfer

The Trump administration hope to be able to announce some clear progress with the Chinese trade war negotiations this week. A spokesperson for the White House said that they were excited about the possibility of “significant technological collaboration” to further the President’s vision for future America. It had long been suspected that the concerns about intellectual property theft ran both ways: China looking to advance its capabilities in AI, robotics and clean energy, while the USA placed satellites to get digital images of valuable strategic infrastructure. Now thanks to Presidents Trump’s tougher stance the Chinese are planning to voluntarily hand over detailed blueprints of the structures of interest. The complete design specifications for the Great Wall are believed to be on the table as a deal sweetener, marking a major coup for the President who sees this type of wall as a key part of his agenda for American innovation.
