Two Chinese Nationals Accused of Stealing Trade Secrets and Espionage

Two Chinese Nationals are wanted by the FBI after allegations of stealing trade secrets and espionage.

Hui Huang, 36, is wanted by the FBI on allegations involving a conspiracy to steal trade secrets from a United States business on behalf of a Chinese company, CBM Future, related to the manufacture of a high-performance foam product used by both the military and civilians, according to the FBI. The FBI says that CBM Future tasked Huang with interacting between several alleged co-conspirators in the United States to gather trade secrets to further CBM Future’s efforts to reproduce the high-performance foam. The FBI says he traveled to the United States several times, and is believed to be located in China.

Gang Liu, 35, is wanted on allegations of conspiracy to commit economic espionage and steal trade secrets from a United States business on behalf of a Chinese company, CBM future, according to the FBI. The United States company is involved with manufacturing a high-performance foam product used by the military and for civilian purposes, the FBI said. The FBI said Liu had worked as an engineer for the U.S. business, and was in a position where he had access to proprietary and trade secret data. The FBI accused him of stealing trade secrets and providing them to CBM Future to aid in the objectives of the Chinese government, along with other alleged co-conspirators. “Liu was indicted for theft of trade secrets in June 2017. Liu fled to China in November 2017 while on supervised release pending his trial,” the FBI wrote. “Based on new information, Liu was indicted along with a co-conspirator for economic espionage in addition to theft of trade secrets in April 2018.”
