"US adds two dozen Chinese groups to trade blacklist", 3 March 2023

The commerce department placed the groups on its “entity list”, which in effect prohibits US companies from supplying them with technology produced in America. Some of the companies were blacklisted for providing technology to an Iranian entity previously targeted by US sanctions...

Companies include BGI Research and BGI Tech (part of BGI Group), Loongson Technology, Suzhou Centec Communications, 4Paradigm Technology, Inspur Group, DMT Trading, Neotec Semiconductor, Galaxy Electronics and Arttronix International.
