Chinese companies were taking advantage of loopholes in US law
The 2018 law expanded CFIUS oversight to review certain joint ventures, minority stakes and real estate deals near military bases or other sensitive national security facilities. According to a report, Chinese companies were taking advantage of loopholes in US law and improperly obtaining technology and possibly sensitive information. US lawmakers have also expressed concern that Chinese companies were working with foreign companies to gain access to sensitive technology.
