Huawei on List of 20 Chinese Companies That Pentagon Says Are Controlled by People’s Liberation Army:

The Pentagon put Huawei Technologies and Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology on a list of 20 companies it says are owned or controlled by China's military, opening them up to potential additional U.S. sanctions.

In letters to lawmakers dated June 24, the Pentagon said it was providing a list of "Communist Chinese military companies operating in the United States." The list was first requested in the fiscal 1999 defense policy law.

This list includes "entities owned by, controlled by, or affiliated with China's government, military, or defense industry," Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement.

[...] The companies on the list are:

Aviation Industry Corporation of China
China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation
China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation
China Electronics Technology Group Corporation
China South Industries Group Corporation
China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation
China State Shipbuilding Corporation
China North Industries Group Corporation
Huawei Technologies Co.
Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology Co.
Inspur Group; Aero Engine Corporation of China
China Railway Construction Corporation
CRRC Corp.; Panda Electronics Group
Dawning Information Industry Co.
China Mobile Communications Group
China General Nuclear Power Corp.
China National Nuclear Power Corp.
China Telecommunications Corp.

Given how inter-connected the world is, how practical would it be to avoid all such Chinese companies?

    I've been to at least one Chinese restaurant that seemed like a money laundering front. Seedy location, almost no traffic during lunch time the few times I went, gave me shrimp instead of chicken once. Pretty good strategy tbh.

    There might be a weird thing at some Chinese places where they'll insist on giving you something you don't want. It happened to us once and we finally had to send back the dish when it arrived, *then* they got the message. They were heavily accented English speakers, but I thought "no" was about the easiest thing to understand, and w kept saying it. It only happened to me once, but it sticks out in my mind to this day. I wonder if the inflection on "no" made them think we really wanted it, because Chinese is a tonal language and they might not have gotten used to English not being tonal.

      My Japanese instructor told me some japanese dialects are also tonal. But she came from a region where the local dialect was not tonal. She thought tonality was odd.
