The Hong Kong business community is deeply impacted by recent changes in the dynamic US-Hong Kong-China relationship. With the introduction of targeted US economic sanctions and export controls, and the revocation of Hong Kong's special status under some US laws, companies doing business or investing in Hong Kong face new risks and challenges unlike before.

Join the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong for a special presentation featuring two former US government officials and experts in US sanctions and export controls, John Smith and Wendy Wysong, for a discussion of what these changes mean (and don't mean) for Hong Kong. Our speakers will aim to clarify common misunderstandings about US sanctions and export controls, highlight practical risks and impact and draw attention to key issues beneath the political rhetoric that warrant our attention. Their presentations will be followed by a Q&A period open to all attendees.
