One of the biggest fears of what is today the best drone company in the world has come true. A senior official in the Commerce Department has confirmed in a press conference that DJI will immediately enter the Entity list, automatically causing the prohibition of making commercial agreements within the United States and with American companies.

It was something that had been rumored for quite some time, however, the presidential elections seemed to cool the atmosphere a bit, although everything indicates that the Trump administration does not want to leave the White House without finishing its duties.

What happens now?

Being immediately, DJI will no longer be able to sell its drones and gadgets in the United States, in the same way that it will not be able to access chips, processors and any type of technology developed in the United States, so it will be necessary to see to what extent the company’s distribution chain will be affected.

After the launch of the new DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced and the new and popular DJI Mini 2It remains to be seen if the launch plans will be affected for the new products that the manufacturer plans to announce in the coming months.

Also keep in mind that DJI’s drones and cameras are especially popular products with consumers, and now that Christmas is approaching, banning sales of the units in the United States could seriously disrupt the company’s economic plans. brand.

Many more companies affected

But the DJI case is not the only one we encounter today. The list has been updated with a total of 60 Chinese companies, and among those affected is also the chipmaker SMIC. This company seems to be another of the great concerns of the government, since according to the Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, “commerce will act to guarantee that the technology of the United States, developed and produced in accordance with the principles of free market and open , is not used for malicious or abusive purposes ”.

“China actively promotes the reprehensible practices of forced labor, DNA collection and ubiquitous surveillance to repress its citizens in Xinjang and elsewhere. In the past two years, this administration has added nearly 50 entities to the Entity List for their support of the Chinese Communist Party’s despicable offensive against vulnerable ethnic minorities. With these new additions, we are applying those principles to the rest of China, including Tibet, and to the authoritarian regimes to which these practices are exported. “

With a month to go before the new president takes over in the White House, it remains to be seen if these prohibition measures turn the tables when the new president is at the helm.
