[Central News Agency] The Speaker of the US House of Representatives McCarthy fulfilled his election promise today.
With the joint support of Democratic lawmakers, the House of Representatives voted today to establish a special committee on U.S.-China strategic competition to review U.S.-China competition.
Republican Congressman Gallagher will serve as the chairman of the committee.
McCarthy (Kevin McCarthy) said after the results of the mid-term election last year that one of the first tasks after being elected as the Speaker of the House of Representatives is to establish a special committee on China.
This committee will focus on exposing and combating the CCP's threats to the US network, trade and military.

Today's resolution on the Select Committee on Strategic Competition Between the US and China was passed with 365 votes in favor and 65 against, including 146 Democrats and all Republicans.
Speaking in the House of Representatives, McCarthy said falling behind communist China was one of the biggest concerns about the future. "We spent decades passing policies that welcomed China into the global system. In return, China exported oppression, aggression and anti-Americanism. mood."
He said that the committee will study how to bring jobs from China back to the United States, protect American intellectual property rights and American agriculture and other issues.
The China Committee will be a committee of cross-party cooperation, and Congress will respond to many challenges from China with one voice.
The committee, which will consist of 16 members of the House of Representatives, will be chaired by Mike Gallagher.
Gallagher said it's time to fight back against the CCP's aggression in a bipartisan way.
Today's overwhelming cross-party vote to establish the China Special Commission is an important step in that direction.
The next step is to include serious members on the committee and start working with a sense of urgency.
McCarthy established the "China Task Force" (China Task Force) in the House of Representatives in May 2020, and the members of the group are all Republican members.
The establishment of the China Special Committee today once again reflects McCarthy's high concern about China's challenges.
