U.S. warns companies not to do business in Xinjiang

All national papers highlighted a “strong warning” issued by the Biden administration on Wednesday against American and international companies operating or doing business in China’s Xinjiang province, quoting the “Xinjiang Supply Chain Business Advisory” as saying that such firms “could run a high risk of violating U.S. law.” The papers said while some Japanese corporations have already scaled back their investments in the region in response to calls from Washington to do so in the past, others are perplexed by the fresh warning since their supply chains are so complex that it will be difficult for them to check whether any materials they procure originate in Xinjiang. They are also reportedly concerned that suspending transactions with Xinjiang partners will prompt Chinese people to boycott their products.
