On Thursday, August 6, US President Trump signed a pair of Executive Orders (EOs) designed to address the national security risks posed by the Chinese social media platforms WeChat and TikTok, set to take effect on September 20. On September 18, 2020, the US Department of Commerce published a notice specifying a series of transactions to be prohibited on TikTok or WeChat mobile applications. Immediately following this notice, announcements of related deals to restructure TikTok's US presence, the September 19 release of China's Regulations on the List of Unreliable Entities, and a preliminary court injunction blocking the WeChat EO have raised as many questions as they have answered.
To help members make sense of these ongoing developments, AmCham China is hosting a member-only webinar via Microsoft Teams on Friday, September 25, from 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM Beijing Time. The primary purpose of the workshop is to brief members on the most recent regulatory developments and their evolving implications for foreign companies in China.
Please register by noon, Thursday, September 24. For any questions, please email Chloe Ma at firstname.lastname@example.org.
