Business Groups Voice Concern Over Restrictive Chinese Innovation Rules

USCIB joined a number of other leading global business associations in submitting a letter to the Chinese government in response to new rules requiring vendors to gain accreditation for their products before they can be included in a government catalog of products containing “indigenous innovation.”

These requirements could effectively close off China from innovation and technology developed overseas and does not uphold the G20’s leaders’ commitment to refrain from introducing new protectionist measures.

In other USCIB China committee news, please save the date of January 26 for the next meeting, in Paris, of the BIAC China Task Force, which will include an afternoon consultation with the OECD Informal Reflection Group on China.  Please contact Justine Bareford ( if you would like more information or are interested in attending these meetings.
