Washington D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Republican Leader on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Chairman of the China Task Force, announced the pillars of the China Task Force: National Security, Technology, Economics and Energy, Competitiveness, and Ideological Competition. Each member of the Task Force will serve on two pillars as a co-chair. 

“Each of these pillars represents a key focus area where U.S. leadership and democratic values counteract Chinese Communist Party (CCP) malfeasance globally. The five pillars reflect the key aspects of our strategic competition with China, as identified by our members: military superiority and homeland security; advanced technology; economic strength; increasing our competitiveness; and the battle between democracy and authoritarianism. We must take decisive action across each of these vital domains to better secure our future. Task Force members will use their diverse expertise to develop policy recommendations for the pillars they co-chair, and I look forward to working with each of them as we add to our growing list of legislative solutions that address the greatest challenge of our generation.”
