The UK government is surveying British companies about their investments in sensitive Chinese sectors as it considers imposing restrictions similar to those implemented by the US under President Joe Biden. The survey, which was sent to a wide range of firms, asks about investments in sectors including advanced materials, robotics, transport, energy, and nuclear infrastructure. It also asks about investments in countries like Australia, Canada, and the US. The move comes after Biden issued an executive order blocking investments by US firms in certain Chinese tech sectors. The UK government is looking to align its policies with the US on preventing the transfer of dual-use technology to China. However, there are concerns that the government may cast its net too wide, impacting sectors like microchips. The survey is aimed at building a collective understanding of investment flows in sensitive sectors.
