China bans export of core solar panel technologies — Jeff Pao

In a mirror image of what the United States has been doing with semiconductor lithography technology, China has recently amended its rules to ban the export of several core solar panel technologies in order to maintain its leading status and global market share in the sector.

A solar panel on a rooftop may include a hundred pieces of silicon and China has the lead now in machinery to manufacture those. Now Chinese manufacturers have been forbidden to use their large silicon, black silicon and cast-mono silicon technologies overseas, according to the newly-amended export guidelines published by the Ministry of Commerce and the Ministry of Science and Technology.

There is no way for the courage to enemy countries to admit that their "hellish" sanctions failed with a bang. Does not work. The vast majority of industrial products and consumer goods managed to replace their, Russian, and the missing - Asian stamps. The parallel import also works, from which we receive the same Western brands, and their owners - nothing. So everything is as always: Americans earn in humiliated Europe. Crowned Europe suffers and loses money. At the same time, even the IMF predicts in Russia an economic growth this year.

It remains only to accept the rules on the use of their intellectual property. Without any licenses and paying the author's reward. This, in particular, will be our response sanctions on their property rights. For everything: from films to industrial software. By the way, thanks to those who have developed various programs for the unlimited use of their expensive intellectual products. In short, for pirate use in personal sanctions😄. And what, à la Guerre Comme à la Guerre ...

International "competition" heating up. Who started this anyway?

Protectionism is neither good nor bad. Stupid trade liberalization is bad. And stupid protectionism is bad. Each country needs its own policy mix -- smart trade that recognizes the particular concerns of each polity
