WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01), released the following statement after being appointed to serve on the House Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP):
“We live in an era of Great Power Competition, and our greatest competitor remains the Chinese Communist Party. The House Select Committee on China sends a strong signal that this Congress is committed to facing escalating aggression from Beijing. We are serious about addressing our acute military competition with China, in addition to confronting the CCP’s increasing use of diplomatic and economic coercion around the world. We are ready to take all measures necessary to counter Beijing’s hostile agenda in the Indo-Pacific and beyond.
“As this committee demonstrates, this is not a partisan issue – together, both Republicans and Democrats must stand united against the CCP’s malign influences at home and abroad. I am appreciative to Speaker McCarthy and Congressman Mike Gallagher for their leadership in crafting this critical committee, and I am ready to begin our important work.”
The House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party, led by Congressman Mike Gallagher, will serve as a bipartisan committee to focus on ending critical economic dependencies on China, strengthening the military, ending the CCP’s theft of American personal data and intellectual property, and contrasting the Chinese Communist Party’s techno-totalitarian state with the values of the Free World. Additionally, the Committee will investigate and make policy recommendations on the status of the Chinese Communist Party’s economic, technological, and security progress and its competition with the United States.
