Hong Kong in Transition:
Export, Import and Tax/Currency Implications of Hong Kong’s Changed Status under U.S. Law

In response to recent events in Hong Kong, the United States has triggered significant changes to the treatment of Hong Kong under U.S. law. These changes affect U.S. export control authorization requirements, as well as import procedures, duties, taxes, and currency exchange. In anticipation of likely disruption of operations in Hong Kong and further escalation of sanctions, businesses need to develop contingency plans.  This session will discuss different possible scenarios and compare trade regimes in other Asia Pacific jurisdictions that may be alternatives to Hong Kong.

This webinar will feature the following international trade practitioners:
