The U.S. will use diplomatic and legal means to halt China's computer theft of trade secrets, its new ambassador in Beijing said today, amid escalating tensions between the two sides over cybersecurity.
"Cyber-enabled theft of trade secrets by state actors in China has emerged as a major threat to our economic and thus national security," Max Baucus, who took up the post of U.S. ambassador to China in March, told members of the American business community during a speech in Beijing today.
