Current challenges and critical issues doing business from and to China

On 18 September 2018 the Customs, International Trade & Regulatory Practice at Kneppelhout & Korthals Lawyers, together with the firm’s China Practice, organises the seminar “China & Trade Controls: current challenges and critical issues doing business from and to China”.

Kneppelhout & Korthals Advocaten, Boompjes 40 te Rotterdam
Target Audience
Anyone interested in Export Controls, International Trade and Dutch-Chinese partnerships on innovation

China has been playing an ever more important role in international trade, not only as an importer but also as an exporter of technology products. The development and manufacture of these products gradually shifts to China’s mainland. The international trade in technology products between China and the EU is nevertheless regulated from both sides. While the EU is increasing compliance measures on the export of technology products to China, companies are experiencing prohibitions, China also has recognised a growing need to update it's current export control legislation and strengthen Chinese enforcement practice.
