WASHINGTON — Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew plans to pressure Chinese leaders to crack down on cyber attacks against U.S. targets when he visits Beijing this week on his first foreign trip since being confirmed.
A senior Obama administration official told the Financial Times that one focus of Lew’s talks in China will be to press the country to “take serious steps to investigate and put a stop to these activities.”
In addition to cyber-security, Lew will discuss intellectual property enforcement and export financing with Chinese leaders, the Financial Times said.
