Biden’s Commerce pick, Raimondo, voices tough line on China

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s pick to oversee the Commerce Department has taken a tough line on China in her confirmation hearing. But Gina Raimondo stopped short of singling out which Chinese companies should remain on a list that limits their access to advanced U.S. technology. Raimondo is the first woman elected governor of Rhode Island. She says China’s actions have been anti-competitive and hurtful to American workers and she will use all tools at her disposal to level the playing field for American workers. Raimondo also focused her testimony Tuesday on the need to help those sectors of the economy and the workers hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic.last_img
