More CCP Companies To Be Added To The U.S. Sanctions List

It is reported on March 17th, a senior U.S. Department of Homeland Security official said that one of the department’s top priorities this year is to implement the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act by putting more companies using forced labour in China’s Xinjiang region on the sanctions list.

Another important mission on the department’s agenda is to convince Europe, as well as Japan, Australia, India and other countries, to pursue enforcement mechanisms similar to those in the United States. The U.S. government has accused the Chinese Communist Party of committing genocide against Muslim minorities in Xinjiang.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act was signed by the U.S. into its law on December 23, 2021. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security was subsequently designated to establish a sanctions list for companies known to engage in forced labour transactions. Robert P. Silvers, Under Secretary for Strategy, Policy and Programs at the Department of Homeland Security, recently said, “We are very aware based on credible reporting from the NGO and other communities that there’s a significant number of companies that are operating in Xinjiang or around Xinjiang that are engaging in these abhorrent practices, and we want to name them, and we want to ensure that their goods do not come into this country.”
