January 12, 2021, Covington Alert

Specifically, the Rules are designed to “counteract” the extraterritorial application of “foreign [i.e., non-Chinese] legislation” or “measures” when such application “unjustifiably” prohibits or restricts a Chinese citizen, entity or other organization from engaging in “normal business activities” with “parties of a third country (region)” “in violation of international law and the basic principles of international relations.”
