In 2020 the U.S. State Department issued several advisories to exercise caution when traveling to the People's Republic of China, warning of "arbitrary enforcement of local laws." While most detentions of foreign nationals in China are routine procedures, it is still important to know what to expect and how to prepare.
AmCham Shanghai presents a lunchtime security briefing to address some of the issues. Thomas Nunlist, Risk Intelligence Senior Analyst at Hill & Associates, a risk consultancy of G4S Group, will open with a baseline assessment on the current security situation for foreign nationals in China, including some recommendations for companies. Next, Thomas and Edward Swoyer, the State Department's Regional Security Officer, will answer audience questions.
