OREANDA-NEWS The Ministry of Economy of Taiwan (MOEA) has expanded restrictions on the export of high-tech goods to Russia and Belarus. This is stated on the agency's website.

In total, 52 items were included in the updated list. Among them were substances related to nuclear energy, chemicals, mechanical engineering products. According to the ministry, these measures are aimed at preventing the export of dual-use goods and technologies that can be used for military purposes.

The new export rules have already entered into force. The Ministry called on suppliers to comply with export control rules and conduct due diligence before carrying out transactions with Russia and Belarus.

In June 2022, MOEA banned the export of chips with a clock frequency of more than 25 MHz to Russia and Belarus. In addition, it is impossible to supply chips with more than 144 contacts. It is also prohibited to import certain types of lithographic equipment used for the manufacture of microchips. Belarus has come under restrictions because it can help Russia import such goods, according to the authorities of Taiwan.
