The letter, issued by Jacob Helberg, Commissioner of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), emphasizes the importance of technological superiority and innovation in deterring potential conflicts and expresses support for government actions to accelerate the development and adoption of advanced military technology. While acknowledging legislative efforts to restrict Chinese technologies and protect national security, they highlight the need for closer collaboration between the government and the technology sector to bridge the gap between commercial and military technologies. The letter outlines various proposals and systemic reforms aimed at ensuring the United States and its allies maintain a technological advantage for security, stability, and prosperity. The signatories express their readiness to support these efforts in partnership with Congress and the Administration.
