‘Falling Into China’s Trap’: UK Navy Contract with Chinese-Linked Firm Flagged as ‘Maritime 5G’

At the end of July this year British MPs launched an inquiry targeting foreign involvement in the procurement process of military weapons for the UK’s defence supply chain, seeking to crack down on the possibility of “interference from adversaries”.

A UK Royal Navy diving contract with a Chinese-linked firm has triggered security concerns and been labeled as a “maritime version of our 5G” by the Chairman of the Defence Select Committee, reported The Telegraph.

Tobias Ellwood issued a warning after JFD, a world leading underwater capability provider supplying the commercial and defence markets with diving, submarine and hyperbaric rescue equipment, had won a contract for the management and availability of the Royal Navy’s in-service life-support diving equipment.
