With heightened U.S.-China tensions and the recent passage of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, multinational corporations continue to find themselves caught in the middle of political risk. Firms hoping to import into the U.S. face an opaque and unprecedented process, leaving many unsure of the extent to which they should invest in supply chain due diligence and traceability and whether to restructure their supply chains beyond China. Others are trying to understand the longer-term implications of the UFLPA on forced labor laws and regulations in other markets.
To consider these issues, please join us Sept. 20 for an online discussion and Q&A with Angela Marshall Hofmann, vice president of trade and supply chain resiliency at Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg and senior advisor, Eurasia Group; David Olave, associate and trade policy advisor, Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg; Jonathan Lang, director, trade and supply chains, Eurasia Group; and Christina Huguet, senior analyst, industrial and consumer, Eurasia Group.
We’ll explore the geopolitical drivers leading to the UFLPA, share current findings and enforcement practices, and discuss what this all means in the context of supply chain planning while identifying milestones that could serve as early warning signs of additional action.
