U.S. Advisory on Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region

The U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are issuing an advisory to highlight the harsh repression in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang). The Xinjiang Supply Chain Business Advisory can be found at https://www.state.gov/xinjiang-supply-chain-business-advisory/.

The Advisory informs businesses, individuals, and other persons, including but not limited to academic institutions, research service providers, and investors (hereafter “businesses and individuals”), that choose to operate in Xinjiang or engage with entities that use labor from Xinjiang elsewhere in China of reputational, economic, and, in certain instances, legal, risks associated with certain types of involvement with entities that engage in human rights abuses.
