Webinar: Sanctions on China: where are we heading?

Senior Partner Michael O’Kane and Maya Lester KC, of Brick Court Chambers, hosted a discussion on present and potential future sanctions on China on 2 May 2023.

They examined the political context in which sanctions have been imposed on China, and in what context additional restrictions may be imposed in the future.

The discussion covered what type of restrictions could be adopted and the potential targets of these, as well as how these may compare to the sanctions imposed on Russia in response to its aggression against Ukraine by a number of co-operating states within the international community.

Conversation also turned to the preparation of policy for imposing sanctions on China and the way industry is accounting for the risk that future sanctions may introduce.

The webinar also featured:

David Wolber, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher in Hong Kong;

Cindy Yu, an assistant editor of The Spectator and presenter of the Chinese Whispers podcast; and

– Chloe Cina, Head of Global Sanctions Advisory at Deutsche Bank.
