Abstract:

This is the 11th annual report reviewing the threat to the United States from foreign economic collection and industrial espionage. The report seeks to characterize and assess efforts by foreign entities -- government and private -- to target or acquire critical US technologies, trade secrets, and sensitive financial or proprietary economic information. The loss of these could undermine US military capability, impede the ability of US firms to compete in the world marketplace, or have an adverse effect on the US economy, thereby weakening national security and eroding the current US technological lead.
