Singapore China Japan Hong Kong Australia

AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 13 August 2020

Recent events have opened a new chapter in the relationship between Hong Kong and the United States. The U.S. Administration has taken a series of actions that tighten U.S. export controls for Hong Kong and may sanction Chinese government officials in response to the decision to establish the new security law for Hong Kong.

Please Join us for a fact-based and practical discussion of current U.S.-Hong Kong policy, including:     

  • The legal foundation for the U.S. trade and sanctions regime with respect to Hong Kong
  • The process required to levy additional restrictions on Hong Kong or Chinese entities and persons
  • Potential actions affecting the asset management industry in Hong Kong and the United States
  • How fund managers can navigate legal conflicts in response to these policies
