Navigating tighter US export controls
WHAT: The United States Department of Commerce’s suspension of preferential treatment of Hong Kong in comparison to Mainland China – on such issues as the availability of export licence exceptions for items subject to Export Administration Regulations – has created a great deal of uncertainty among exporters. This webinar will outline the new realities of the situation for Hong Kong businesses, including advice on avoiding possible violations, as well as details as to how to ascertain whether transaction partners and / or traded items – such as commodities, software and technology – fall within the remit of these changed US regulations.
