As the U.S. -China relationship continues to deteriorate, the United States has stepped up the use of sanctions against Beijing. China’s imposition of a new national security law in Hong Kong has prompted new sanctions against high ranking officials in that territory. To bring clarity on the use of sanctions, Robert Bailey, working in OFAC compliance issues for Wells Fargo Bank, will provide an overview of U.S. Sanctions as well as recent developments pertaining to sanctions and their application.
The presentation will include the following elements:
• Effects and Types of Sanctions
• Primary Sanctions vs. Secondary Sanctions
• Sanctions targeted for China, Hong Kong, Iran and North Korea
• Enforcement – Subsidiary Risk and Supplier Risk
• The Huawei Situation
