    Ma quoted in BBC article on Chinese students in the US

    Lovely speaks to China Daily about US techno-nationalism

    Professor Mary Lovely says it's "not true" that the US sees all its technological advantages being stolen by China. "We can see the majority of high-tech goods, defined by the Chinese, are still being exported by foreign-invested enterprises operating in China.

    "Given that many Chinese outward investors are state-owned or state-invested firms with access to state-owned banks, showing an absence of government subsidy could be difficult. Thus, the proposal alone can deter Chinese investment activity in Europe. In short, the pandemic has led to greater fear of Chinese unfair practices, not less," says Professor Mary Lovely. She was quoted in the South China Morning Post article "EU-China ties hinge on Germany’s political future as reign of Beijing ally Angela Merkel nears its end."
