Beijing’s top intelligence agency has rolled out a new anti-espionage regulation, subjecting institutions and companies to tighter surveillance, including on students and scholars going abroad from China.
This announcement was made on the same day that the United States announced that in the national interest it will allow entry for students and scholars from certain countries, including China, Iran, Brazil, and South Africa. They will be exempt from existing travel bans.
The Chinese regime’s first anti-spy regulations, which were announced and took effect on April 26, allow the Ministry of State Security, the intelligence agency, to compose a list identifying key institutions and companies that are “susceptible to foreign infiltration.”
Once included on the list, social groups, institutions, and enterprises are required to educate staff with access to sensitive information or those working overseas. The premise for those staff to take on their jobs is to sign a letter of obedience.
According to the new rules, special types of anti-spy equipment and infrastructure will be deployed for the listed key entities. The intelligence agency will have the right to examine their technological equipment, including electronic communications tools, devices, facilities, or networks.
While scant on details about names on the list, the new regulation makes specific mention of requirements for schools and research institutions.
Further, students, scholars, and teachers participating in overseas study, exchanges, or visiting programs are required to carry out “pre-travel education” before they leave China and must undertake a “debriefing on return.”
Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mouthpiece Global Times, reported that a staff member in charge of foreign affairs at the headquarters of a state-owned enterprise said that pre-departure training methods for students or personnel working abroad might include seminars or watching movies about cases of foreign intelligence work.

Anyone who believes anything the CCP says is just stupid.
Anyone who believes the anti-American left wing deep state isn’t joined with Beijing is just stupid.
anyone who comes here from China, under the current Chinese regime, is a spy and, in turn, are spied on. It’s a government mandate and their families are at risk for noncompliance.
We should not be admitting anyone from a nation conducting biowarfare on the world.
The CCP is playing for keeps folks..they are inside the wire and they intend to take the world over from within. The CCP has no soul and is all about power. Pure and simple and there is nothing off the table for them. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had and FBI,CIA and NSA dedicated to protecting American citizens....I am fully convince the CCP is inside the wire of our most trusted institutions... civilian and military alike...
Seems peculiar that tomorrow, May 1, May Day, is not getting the usual pre May Day hype it usually gets for planned commie parades and revelry. Usually the commie groups fall all over each other touting their upcoming festivities.
Funny, I was thinking exactly that. I would think that there will be scattered groups who take it upon themselves to celebrate May Day, but the Democrats are probably too smart to associate themselves with mayday because most or certainly many people understand that it is a communist holiday. No the mainstream of what we now understand to be the radical left will try to separate and distinguish themselves from any May Day celebration. That way they can declare themselves to be righteous.
