The Biden Administration is investing over $20 billion in port security, to protect against Chinese cybersecurity threats. One takeaway will be funding for alternatives to Chinese-made cranes. And one beneficiary will be Mitsui.


As Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD)‘s Craig Singleton put it, “Increasingly, the Chinese are not merely seeking access to our networks; they are pre-emptively positioning to compromise and control them. As a result, China is poised to impede the mobilization of American military forces, foment a state of disarray, and redirect national attention and resources in both war and short-of-war scenarios.”

This is good news for US-based supply chain providers that can deliver an alternative to American ports.
