@SR: good point. There are many examples to "big multinational companies try to get away with anything, until they can't..." in many countries in Asia. Many pesticides and chemicals banned in the US are still in use in many Asian countries! So I wouldn't treat multinational companies as "holier than thou" when it comes to matters like these with Qualcomm & NDRC of China.

In the best interest of all sides concerned, I think it makes good sense for NDRC to make public the "confidential" relating to Qualcomm so other businesses can make better business decisions while operating in China.

Well, here's what I think. If by the use of the word, "attack" there is an implicit assumption that these multinational companies are innocent and China govt. is the bad guy, then I disagree with this assumption. Put yourself in an Asian govt. shoes, see what havoc is wreaked by multinational companies on domesitc environment, and domestic economic situation. These multinational companies use Asian markets as dumping grounds for everything, cheap products, experimental pricing, throwaway pricing, pollution, disregard for human labor conditions etc. So I wouldn't jump too quickly to the conclusion, "Oh, China is doing all these bad things to the good U.S. / international companies, look how bad China is." Remember, big multinational companies try to get away with anything, until they can't.

I agree that it is politically motivated to retaliate US investigation against Huawei and ZTE. Why now? I reckon China now is open enough and it does not rely on these big companies for technoloy any more. By squeezing them out of the Chinese market, it will help the domestic companies.

In short, these big companies are not as welcome as before.

Is China finally saying that they can live w/o the multinational companies?  That they already have THE tehnologies and that there is no need for more?  Like the "flywheel" they believe they have already achieved the momentum required to make thier own homegrown technology?

If China will continue this sort of steps then the multinationals will be encouraged to find some other place for hosting their manufacturing units. This might create opportunity for other developing countries.

Ahh, good one, Rick. So, in this case, foreign multinationals are like Rick in Casablanca!

Captain Renault: What in heaven's name brought you to China?

Rick: My health. I came to China for fortunes.

Captain Renault: The fortunes? What fortunes? We're in the poor economy.

Rick: I was misinformed.

I speculate this is part of a government crackdown on corruption, pointing the finger at non China multinationals rather than the internal bureaucrats who may have been encouraging bribes in the first place.

Like the movie classic Casablanca when the prefect of police closes Rick's Cafe because he has found gambling and says he is "Shocked, shocked..." Then his underling comes over and says "Here are your winnings, Monsieur Prefect."

I still don't get it...why China appears so intent on getting multinationals in recent months. Politically motivated? I am sure that's part of it. But it doesn't seem to do much good either for Chinese companies who need to work with multinationals or those who compete with multinationals.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
