Against the backdrop of China’s growing economic, political and military influence worldwide, the United States is reassessing its economic relationship with China, particularly with regard to exports of strategic goods and technology to China and foreign investment from China. The U.S. government has implemented or is considering a range of national security-related measures—including expanding export control restrictions, designating Chinese companies, and the passing the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act of 2018—which have created compliance challenges for global companies doing business with China and an increasingly complicated environment for foreign investment in the United States.

In this installment of the Trade Demystified video series, Ajay Kuntamukkala and Anne Salladin discuss the scope of the challenges related to China, agency actions in trade and export controls, and the implications of the passage of FIRRMA, and provide guidance on how companies can be proactive in this ever-changing environment.
