The unrestricted acquisition or use in the United States of information and communications technology or services designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of foreign adversaries augments the ability of these foreign adversaries to create and exploit vulnerabilities in information and communications technology or services, with potentially catastrophic effects.

                Notice of May 13, 2020

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Securing the Information and Communications 
                Technology and Services Supply Chain

                On May 15, 2019, by Executive Order 13873, I declared a 
                national emergency pursuant to the International 
                Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) 
                to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security, foreign policy, and economy of 
                the United States posed by the unrestricted acquisition 
                and use of certain information and communications 
                technology and services transactions.

                The unrestricted acquisition or use in the United 
                States of information and communications technology or 
                services designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied 
                by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the 
                jurisdiction or direction of foreign adversaries 
                augments the ability of these foreign adversaries to 
                create and exploit vulnerabilities in information and 
                communications technology or services, with potentially 
                catastrophic effects. This threat continues to pose an 
                unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
                States. For this reason, the national emergency 
                declared on May 15, 2019, must continue in effect 
                beyond May 15, 2020. Therefore, in accordance with 
                section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 
                U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the 
                national emergency declared in Executive Order 13873 
                with respect to securing the information and 
                communications technology and services supply chain.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    May 13, 2020.
