“The U.S. government on Tuesday strengthened its warnings to businesses about the growing risks of having supply chain and investment links to China’s Xinjiang region, citing forced labor and human rights abuses there. … Signaling broader U.S. government coordination on the issue, the Department of Labor and the U.S. Trade Representative’s Office joined in issuing the updated advisory, first released on July 1, 2020 under the Trump administration by the State, Commerce, Homeland Security and Treasury departments. The new advisory strengthens warning to U.S. companies, noting they are at risk of violating U.S. law if their operations are linked even ‘indirectly’ to the Chinese government’s ‘vast and growing surveillance network’ in Xinjiang.” (07/13/21)
