WASHINGTON—China is tar- geting top scientific and technological expertise in the U.S. and other advanced nations through an expanding network of 600 talent-recruitment stations world-wide, a new report partly funded by the U.S. State Department has found.

U.S. officials have long warned that China uses recruitment programs to improperly obtain advanced technology. However, the research conducted by an Australian think tank details the little-known but elaborate infrastructure the Chinese Communist Party uses to recruit scientists from organizations such as Tesla Inc. and Harvard University through such programs.

Beijing has denied attempting any systematic effort to steal U.S. scientific research, and Chinese state media have said the U.S. is using allegations of intellectual-property theft as a political tool. The Chinese Embassy in Washington didn’t respond to a request to comment.

The talent programs, such as the Thousand Talents Plan, are supported by 600 recruitment stations in countries around the world. They include Germany, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada and Japan, according to the report published by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute, a nonpartisan think tank created by the Australian government. The U.S. has the most with at least 146 stations, the report said.

Though China began opening the stations by 2006, it has greatly accelerated the program in recent years, according to the report by analyst Alex Joske. Of the 600 total stations identified, more than 115 were established in 2018 alone, it said.

Chinese officials typically contract out the operation of the stations to local groups like hometown, business, profes- sional and alumni associations; technology and education companies; and Chinese Students and Scholars Associations at university campuses, the report said. They pay the groups the equivalent of as much as $29,000 for each individual they recruit on top of as much as $22,000 a year for general operating costs, it said.

The recruitment stations, which organize trips for scientists to visit China, often operate in concert with China’s State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs and the United Front Work Department. The unit within China’s ruling Communist Party engages thousands of organizations to collect intelligence, encourage technology transfer, counter dissident movements and generate support for other Beijing objectives.

The Chinese military’s recruitment of scientists is supported by the same network of international recruitment stations and party-linked organizations, the report said.

The research also sheds light on the leading role provincial, municipal and district governments play in China’s talent recruitment efforts. International attention has thus far focused on programs run at the national level, such as the Thousand Talents Plan. However, the report said, more than 80% of talent-recruitment programs are run at the subnational level and may attract as many as seven times as many scientists as the national programs.

Only 20 of the 600 total recruitment stations identified in the report were established by national organizations, it said.

While participating in a foreign talent program isn’t illegal, U.S. officials require partici- pants to disclose such ties if they apply for U.S. taxpayer- supported funding. U.S. authorities also say the Chinese programs often provide incentives to steal intellectual property and create conflicts of interest and commitment—especially when the scientists maintain their positions in the U.S. while doing short stints in China or running parallel labs there.

China’s efforts to attract talent and obtain technology have become a lightning rod in the broader conflict between the U.S. and China. The Justice Department has brought a series of cases against talent-program participants and Chinese military researchers for allegedly lying about their work with China or status with the People’s Liberation Army.

Tesla sued a former engineer, Cao Guangzhi, last year for allegedly taking self-driving technology source code to a U.S. affiliate of Chinese rival Guangzhou Xiaopeng Motors Technology Co. His past activities indicate “a pattern of co-operation” for a decade with China’s talent recruitment network, the report said.

Mr. Cao admitted he uploaded Tesla files to a personal iCloud account, but said he tried to delete them before he left and denied any harm to Tesla. The case is scheduled for a January trial.

A spokesman for Xiaopeng said “Xmotors is not aware of Mr. Cao’s out of office activities, nor are we party to the Tesla case.” Representatives for Tesla and Mr. Cao didn’t return requests to comment.

As a graduate student at Purdue University in 2009, Mr. Cao established an Association of Wenzhou Ph.D.s. The group worked closely with Wenzhou officials to identify U.S. doctoral students from the area and signed an agreement with the United Front Work Department in Wenzhou to run a talent-recruitment station, the report said.

The association grew to exceed 100 members, including U.S. government employees and engineers from Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Apple Inc. and other top technology companies, the report said. The association also helped a university in Wenzhou recruit a scientist from the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, according to the report.

A representative for the Energy Department, which oversees national labs including Argonne, said in a statement:

“While international collaboration is essential to accelerate research and development, some governments, like the Chinese Communist Party, are aggressively pursuing access to foreign science and technology advancements and intellectual property to the detriment of our economic prosperity and security.”

Google and Apple didn’t respond to requests to comment.

    Russia-China combined gold reserves could shake US dominance in global economy – expert tells RT

    They have done it before, put my grandmother on the dole last time in the 1930s I have her dole card tp prove it.She worked in a Cotton mill..We developed new industries, this time no chance.
    This time we have nothing left, a destroyed economy, destroyed financial system,no industry,massive immigration
    and unpayable debts,social turmoil, an imaginery pandemic and a vaccine on the horizon to change your DNA and a controlled cashless society to force you to take the jabs i.e. multiple.

  2. Quick note, good search engine:

    Been using Duckduckgo promoted as privacy tool too much therefore must be doing the opposite, why trust them they always do the opposite of what they say.
    This seems better !

  3. Well I think this is just another round of open technology and wealth transfer from a non-communist world to keep the communist world alive. I believe technosavior marxism is what they hope will sustain world communism in the future as the effects of abortion and depopulation take effect. Federal taxation is another jew-state theft given to jew movements worldwide through world banks/IMF, trade agreements, aid with strings attached etc Leaders of jewish extraction ,either open or crypto, in the west did that with the USSR for decades and still do it but have moved to the easier to leech off of chinese since russia has been sucked very dry by them, but not totally dry it’s so vast. Suttons book on western tech documents that in the USSR. Gunderson also had a copy of a newspaper article in one of his folios about how the Federal Reserve was flying pallets of 100 dollar bills to Russia during the orchestrated “end of communism” in the early 90’s.

    —We see that the jews in the early 70’s think the time right to do this for china since over 100 million people had died at communist hands in china from before it’s founding in 49 to 1976 with the end of the cultural revolution. Perhaps this was when the crypto ethnic chinese jews had finally taken ultimate power after Mao died? Kissinger, jew, was a major part of Nixons China opening, and Nixon was a Rockefeller, jews, man from way back. And now we have the obviously jew walmart, costco and other major chains getting most of their wares from China, theyre making a killing during the plandemic btw, whereas small independent business (which provides non-jew dominated political power) is being strangled, jew-state work there.

    -A side note is the very strange Henry Ford, who also did plenty of business with the USSR, was a hardcore anglophile and obviously an apparent anti-talmudist. How could a CEO not know all about what was actually happening in Russia at that time? I’ve read the articles about international jewry in his paper but can’t remember if he actually knew who was behind the USSR, seems strange if he didn’t. As Catherine Baldwin in her book, “and men wept” points out Ford was an anglophile, but it remains to be seen if Ford was aware that the british-israel empire had been jew controlled for centuries by then. Was Ford one of these agent-provocateurs? His WW1 peace ship is rarely mentioned by the modern jew press either so it’s a wash. But the true colors are shown by profiting off of slave labor in the USSR, no different than the vast majority of megacorps today with China or wherever it’s cheapest and easiest.

    –Another reference as to even the british royalty being crypto jewish through the battenberg line is Itsvan Bakonys Library of Political Secrets in a note in the book “The Jewish Fifth Column in India” Page 19, Lord Reading, Lord Mountbatten. This ties in with the modern crypto royalty if you follow the lines. If you remember Prince Phillip is from those lines, and had a brother in the SS, another clue as to who was behind nazi germany, cryptos and open ones. Sadly I think even most of the Vatican II popes, besides maybe ratzinger, have been cryptos. Not much doubt about JP2, can’t get the image of the Bushes(cryptos) at his public funeral featured very prominently. Bergoglio, berg is for city and a major partial jewish name be fascinated to get a breakdown of the rest of the name, in his very communist oriented speeches and actions seems very subversion infiltrator and likely crypto from the longtime jew-infested Argentina.

    —Every time you hear about “anti-semitism” you have jews playing games, nothing more. Controlled opposition is a major tool. In this time of major jew/crypto criminal behavior(covid, blm) you are going to hear about “anti-semitism” and magically attacks on sinagogues and open jews are going to happen. Utilizing their satanic kabbalistic principle of doing bad to push the good, or light can’t exist without darkness equilibrium dialectic cycle. This was fully repudiated by St Paul in one of the Corinthians or Galatians books.
