US State Department warns companies connected to Uyghur exploitation that they "run a high risk of violating US law"
米、ウイグル取引に警告 国務省「違法の恐れ」
On the 13th, the US Biden administration released a document warning that companies with supply chains in China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region "could run a high risk of violating US law." It pointed to the situation of forced labor and other human rights violations by the Chinese government.
Six federal executive departments, including the State Department, have jointly issued an advisory document for businesses regarding Xinjiang. In light of China's increasingly severe oppression of the Uyghur people, the administration updated a document issued by the previous Trump administration in July 2020.
It urged companies to be cautious, citing the possibility that they could be involved with Chinese companies and organizations complicit in human rights abuses. It gave examples including investment in and joint ventures or research cooperation with Chinese companies dealing with Uyghur surveillance technology, and also the procurement of products made through forced labor.
