The United States has imposed a chip embargo on Huawei since 2019, and has put pressure on countries such as Britain and Canada to ban Huawei.The United States and some western countries are blocking and blocking the semiconductor industry in China.At this time, Chinese rare earth enterprises sell rare earth to Apple To guarantee Apple.According to the us treatment of Chinese companies, Chinese companies should not sell rare earths to Apple.Currently, China has nearly 38 percent of the world’s proven rare earth reserves, and analysts say the Chinese rare earth industry has been supporting global companies, but has not achieved the corresponding economic benefits.China’s rare earth industry needs to be regulated Analysts say the development of rare earths in China has been chaotic due to lax regulation and has caused heavy pollution to the country’s ecological environment.As a result of the chaos, Chinese rare earth manufacturers have lost their bargaining power over rare earth, a scarce resource, in cut-throat competition at low prices.On the other hand, high-end rare earth processing core patents are in Europe and the United States and other enterprises, China can only rely on the export of resources and cheap labor to compete, always at the low end of the industrial chain.Of course, at the end of 2021, several big state-owned enterprises in China have jointly funded and established China Rare earth Group, which will form a new situation of overall planning.But this time, whether the agreement signed by Jiangsu Huahong Technology Company and Apple demonstration purchaser has also been approved by China Rare earth Group?What do you think about that?Feel free to leave a comment, like and share!
