CHINA-US-TECH RELIANCE

BEIJING — Chinese telecoms giant ZTE Corp.'s brush with death after Washington barred it from buying U.S. components was a stark reminder that China's industries still depend on American technology. The Trump administration accuses China of using theft to fill some of those technology needs and is poised to hike tariffs Friday on its goods in a spiraling conflict that could chill global trade. But at the same time, ZTE and other Chinese tech companies pay billions of dollars annually for high-tech U.S. parts and patent rights. According to BMI, China accounts for almost 40 percent of sales by U.S. chip makers such as Micron Technology Inc., Dallas-based Texas Instruments Inc., Intel Corp. and Qualcomm. By Joe McDonald.
