Export controls have been one of the main policy tools wielded by the Trump administration in its trade and technology war against China. Now, China has made its first major move in response, with a new law specifically focused on export controls. Nate Bush discusses the scope of items the new law covers, the ways in which it departs from the export control regimes of other countries, the implications for companies from third countries amid worsening US-China relations, and more.
Nate Bush is partner at DLA Piper in Singapore where he heads the firm’s Asia investigations as well as antitrust and competition practices.
