Trial of Houston businessman stirs debate over U.S. crackdown on China’s economic espionage
By Spencer S. Hsu and Ellen Nakashima

More than 90 percent of U.S. indictments since 2011 alleging economic espionage to benefit a state involve China, as well as more than two-thirds of trade secret theft cases, although not all cases included proof that Beijing directed the thefts involved, Justice Department officials said. Between 2013 and April 2019, the U.S. government brought 22 prosecutions under the Economic Espionage Act, more than twice as many as it did in the seven years before 2013, according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which collects Justice Department data.
