WASHINGTON: Trump Administration officials have rescheduled a critical meeting to discuss potential new US restrictions on sales of technology to Huawei and China to March 11.
The cabinet-level meeting had been set for last week, but was postponed. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, Defence Secretary Mark Esper, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin are among those expected to attend.
On the agenda are ways to expand Washington’s authority to stop more foreign shipments of products with US technology to Huawei. Such a move would address frustration within the Administration that Huawei’s placement on a US trade blacklist failed to cut off supplies to the world’s largest telecoms equipment maker
