Event Summary:
The U.S. Commercial Service invites you to join Alfredo G. Fernandez of Shipman & Goodwin LLP to discuss considerations for exporting to China.

It is no secret that China's economy is one of the world's largest and continues to grow. Many American companies have started or want to enter the Chinese market. Exporting to China presents substantial business upside but also serious compliance risks if done improperly. This webinar will provide practical guidance on exporting to China.

The U.S. State Department's Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) administers the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to regulate international defense trade involving the United States. Because the United States maintains an arms embargo with respect to China, the ITAR include special limitations on exports of defense articles to China. Although many civil and dual-use articles and technology can be exported to China without a license under the ITAR or the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), companies must be diligent in researching the end users and end uses of the exports as the transactions may be prohibited or require licenses based on the destinations. In recent years, enforcement agencies under both branches have increasingly targeted trade violations involving China and thus American exporters must properly handle key risk areas.

The presentation will address:

• ITAR and EAR regulatory restrictions on exports to China

• How to “know your customer” in China

• How to spot red flags before an export occurs

• Risk of entering a joint ventures with a Chinese company

• Cultural considerations for the Chinese business environment

• New Hong Kong import license requirements
