National Counterintelligence Executive Bill Evanina believes China has failed to follow an agreement with the U.S. government to help counter Chinese cyber attacks against U.S. companies, The Hill reported Thursday.

The U.S. counterintelligence operations chief said in a briefing the state of corporate espionage conducted by Chinese hackers has not changed, Katie Bo Williams reports.

Evanina said hackers based in Beijing have stolen technology from various industries such as wind and solar energy, hydraulic and oil fracking and unmanned aircraft, according to the report.

U.S. and Chinese officials have inked a pact in September with the goal of putting an end to intellectual property and trade data theft.
