国会议员安迪·巴尔冠状病毒联邦应急更新--中国工作组

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) lied from the very beginning about the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, and their coverup enabled its spread, threatening us all. The totalitarian leadership in Beijing silenced whistleblowers who attempted to sound the alarm, they underreported their initial cases, they manipulated the World Health Organization (WHO) to spread lies about no human-to-human transmission, and they embarked on an elaborate scheme to hoard personal protective equipment and weaponize the global supply chain of medical and pharmaceutical products against the international community, including the United States. As a result, over 90,000 Americans have lost their lives, and the coronavirus-related shutdown could lead to the worst economic contraction since the Great Depression.

Recently, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced a special 15-member China Task Force to investigate the CCP for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and to make recommendations about key aspects of our long-term strategic competition with China. I am grateful to Leader McCarthy for appointing me to this important Task Force, and I forward to working with the Chairman of the panel, Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), and my other colleagues to provide policy recommendations to hold China accountable, and bring to bear my experience on the Financial Services Committee with sanctions policy, international financial institutions, trade, export/import promotion and controls, and capital markets to confront this most consequential foreign policy challenge.

The Task Force met for the first time last week in Washington, where I received the first in a series of high level briefings. This week, Chairman McCaul announced the five pillars of the Task Force: military superiority and homeland security, advanced technology, economic strength, increasing our competitiveness, and the battle between democracy and authoritarianism. I have been appointed to serve as the Co-Chair of two of those pillars: the Economics and Energy subgroup to address United States competition with the CCP in international trade, the movement of capital, economic statecraft, and the energy industry, and the Competitiveness subgroup to form a proactive, offensive agenda to increase the competitiveness of the United States relative to the CCP. Last week, I discussed the China Task Force with Washington Watch, which can be heard here, and Fox News Radio, which you can listen to here.

中国共产党(CCP)从一开始就对COVID-19大流行的起源说谎,他们掩饰启用其蔓延,威胁到我们所有人。北京的专制领导沉默谁试图敲响警钟告密者,他们低估他们最初的情况下,他们操纵了世界卫生组织(WHO),以传播谎言没有人到人的传播,他们开始了一个精心制作的计划囤个人防护装备和武器化的医疗和医药产品对国际社会,包括美国在内的全球供应链。其结果是,超过90,000美国人失去了生命,和冠状病毒相关的关闭可能导致大萧条以来最严重的经济收缩。

近日,众议院少数党领袖凯文·麦卡锡(R-CA)宣布了一项特殊的15名成员组成的中国专案组展开调查中共为其办理了COVID-19大流行并且使我们与中国的长期战略竞争的关键方面的建议。我非常感谢领导麦卡锡任命我担任这个重要的工作队,我期待与小组主席,众议员迈克尔·麦考尔(R-TX),和我的其他同事合作,提供政策建议持有中国负责,把承担我在财经事务委员会与制裁政策,国际金融机构,贸易,出口/进口促进和控制,以及资本市场的经验来面对这个最有影响的外交政策挑战。

专责小组上周在华盛顿,在那里我获得了一系列高级别简报的第一次见面,第一次。本周,麦克考尔主席宣布专责小组的五大支柱:军事优势和国土安全,技术先进,经济实力,提高我们的竞争力,以及民主和专制之间的战斗。我已经被任命为两个这些支柱的联合主席:经济与能源分组与中共在国际贸易,资本,经济方略,以及能源行业的移动地址美国竞争,竞争力亚组形成一个积极的,进攻性议程,以增加美国相对于中国共产党的竞争力。上周,我讨论了中国工作组与华盛顿观察,可听到这里 ,和福克斯新闻电台,您可以收听到这里
