China criticized expanded U.S. restrictions on its access to semiconductor technology, saying they’ll harm supply chains and the world economy.

President Joe Biden's administration announced the export curbs on Friday, escalating tensions between the two countries and adding complications for an industry faced with slumping demand.

The measures seek to stop China’s drive to develop its own chip industry and advance its military capabilities. They include restrictions on the export of some types of chips used in artificial intelligence and supercomputing and tighten rules on the sale of semiconductor manufacturing equipment to any Chinese company.
