The NDRC said in the recent media interview that Chin

ports, but “the Chinese people will be unhappy” if the country’s exported rare-earth metals are used against China.

Since the start of the China-US trade friction more than a year ago, Washington has taken many measures, includin

g taking advantage of its edge in high-end chip making, to stymie Chinese high-tech firms, the NDRC said.

The NDRC added that in its latest move to dampen China’s industrial development, the US governme

The name 996.ICU refers to a saying among Chin

hinese developers that following the 996 schedule puts you at risk of ending up in an intensive care unit.

In the weeks that followed the creation of 996.ICU in March, the page ha

Users listed tech companies that use the 996 schedule, and then crea

The 996.ICU page was soon blocked on multiple platforms including the messaging tool WeChat and the UC Browser.

The 996 schedule was allegedly first adopted in 2016 by 58.com, a major online classified advertisement site.
