Wilbur Ross, the Trump administration’s secretary of commerce, has been behind an increase in the number of Chinese companies that US companies are prohibited from doing business with without prior authorization.

China announced the imposition of sanctions on a large number of US individuals and institutions in response to the latest batch of US sanctions imposed by Washington on Chinese officials in Hong Kong.

The most prominent US individuals against whom Beijing has imposed sanctions is former US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.

This batch of counter-sanctions announced by China comes a few days before US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman’s visit to Beijing.

US sanctions were imposed on Hong Kong officials for their role in the security crackdown in the territory.
