Ajay Kuntamukkala: BIS v Beijing – conflict through the prism of export controls

14 January 2021

As China moves toward fulfilling its ‘2025’ programme of development, US concern about misappropriation, and mis-use, of American technology has ratcheted up (against the backdrop of Beijing’s assertion of authority in Xinjiang and Hong Kong).

In this presentation, Hogan Lovells Partner Ajay Kuntamukkala will run through the impact of restrictions on trade with China, including the Foreign Direct Product rule, new requirements for military end-use checks and Administration concerns with the presence in the United States of major tech and media conglomerates. Given the legislation’s footprint and targets, these developments have widespread repercussions for investors, business partners and banks.
