Salon | How Would the Sanction on Pompeo and Blocking Measures Impact Foreign Companies and Foreign-invested Enterprises?
By Henry Chen | 2021/1/20 16:06:00

A. What background

On January 21, 2021, China imposed sanctions on 28 U.S. people who have seriously violated China's sovereignty and national security, including Pompeo, Navarro, O'Brien in the Trump administration. These people and their families have been banned from entering the mainland of China, Hong Kong and Macao. They and their affiliated enterprises and institutions have also been restricted from dealing with and doing business with China ("Sanction”).

On January 9, 2021, China’s Ministry of Commerce (“MOFCOM”) issued Measures for Blocking Improper Extraterritorial Application of Foreign Laws and Measures (“Blocking Measures”).  The Blocking Measures caused worries and panics to foreign companies (or non-Chinese companies) and foreign-invested enterprises (“FIEs”) in China.  As such, Henry Chen, a senior partner of Dentons Shanghai Office and his team, organized a workshop as titled to read into the Sanction and the Blocking Measures.

After the workshop, you will know:

--What compliance obligations are provided to Chinese companies, U.S. companies in China and U.S. companies in the U.S.?

--Would the Sanction cause secondary sanctions as well to the U.S. companies in the U.S.?

--What compliance obligations are provided under the Blocking Measures?

--Does the Blocking Measures prohibit a non-Chinese company from observing the sanction order of its home country?

--Under the Blocking Measures, a non-Chinese company could be sued as a beneficiary of a non-Chinese sanction order, would the lawsuit be feasible?

--If not feasible to sue a non-Chinese company, how about an FIE in China?

--How could a non-Chinese company and FIE manage to comply well with the Blocking Measures with business affected least?
