China is seriously concerned about Japan's planned export restrictions on chip manufacturing equipment and called Japan out to correct the wrong doings, China's Ministry of Commerce said on Tuesday.

The comments came after Japan said last week it planned to restrict exports of 23 types of semiconductor manufacturing equipment, aligning its technology trade controls with the US push to curb China's ability to make advanced chips. The Japanese government is seeking public opinions on the measures.

"The relevant measures proposed by Japan are essentially harmful acts against China under the coercion of a certain country, which will not only damage the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese companies, but also cause Japanese companies to suffer, and damage the stability of the global supply chain," the Ministry of Commerce said on its official website.

China is the world's largest semiconductor market and the largest export destination of Japanese semiconductor manufacturing equipment. The industries of the two countries have long formed a close relationship between the upstream and downstream of the industrial chain, according to the ministry.

"We hope that the Japanese side will listen to rational voices… and correct its wrong practices in a timely manner, so as to promote the healthy development of economic and trade relations between China and Japan, and work with all parties to maintain the stability of the global semiconductor industry and supply chain," the Ministry of Commerce said.

"If the Japanese side insists on obstructing cooperation in the semiconductor industry between China and Japan, China will take decisive measures to resolutely safeguard its legitimate rights and interests," the ministry added.
