The Defense Department today released a list of "Chinese military companies" it believes are operating directly or indirectly in the United States.

The list, which has been produced and released in accordance with the Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act, was first released in June 2021. The updated list contains additional companies DOD has deemed “Chinese military companies.”

“The department is determined to highlight and counter the PRC Military-Civil Fusion strategy, which supports the modernization goals of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) by ensuring its access to advanced technologies and expertise are acquired and developed by PRC companies, universities and research programs that appear to be civilian entities,” the Pentagon said in a statement.

DOD notes it plans to continue to update the list with “additional entities as appropriate.”
