China in December adopted its first omnibus legislation governing export controls. This represented a strategic pivot for a country whose trade controls have traditionally relied on a patchwork of import and export provisions. How will the country's new export control regime impact foreign companies seeking to export from China? What impact will controls have on trade and supply chains? How will the extraterritoriality provisions of the law be implemented? Has there been any movement on the unreliable entities list?

AmCham Shanghai is pleased to present a seminar on Chinese export controls. David Pan, Partner, Head of Corporate & Compliance Service Group at LLinks Law, will first introduce China's Export Control Law and MOFCOM Order No. 1 Rules on Counteracting Unjustified Extra-territorial Application of Foreign Legislation and Other Measures. Next, Johnny Xie, Managing Director of Export Controls and Sanctions at FTI Consulting, will give a training on strategies for company compliance with these laws as well as for what's coming down the pipeline.

Finally, a panel with Carol Huang, Head of Export Controls and Customs, East Asia at Siemens Healthineers; Bryce Wu, Asia Pacific Trade Compliance Director at Dell Technologies; Christal Shi, Export Compliance Manager at Qualcomm China; and Lillian Wang, Trade Compliance Specialist at Analog Devices; and moderated by Paul Marks, Executive Chairman and CEO, Argosy International Inc., will discuss the impacts these new trade controls will have on American businesses in the high-technology sector.

The seminar will cover:

  • China's Export Control Law, which came into effect December 1, 2020
  • MOFCOM Order No. 1 of 2021 on Rules on Counteracting Unjustified Extra-Territorial Application of Foreign Legislation and Other Measures, released January 9, 2021
  • The Unreliable Entities List
  • MNC compliance strategies for these laws
  • The business impact of China's new export controls regime

Coffee and a light breakfast will be served. This session is targeted at MNC export and trade compliance departments, in-house counsels, government affairs professionals, and country managers.
