Growing Restrictions Put Sub-tier Sourcing from Xinjiang in JeopardyEverstream Team
November 10, 2021
A new Everstream report details the impacts of tightening global restrictions
As international scrutiny about the suspected widespread human rights abuses in the Xinjiang region intensifies, increased restrictions show the significant impact a ban on just one company can have across an entire industry. The textile, renewable energy, and technology sectors have been especially affected due connections with many Xinjiang-based suppliers and workers. And, additional bans, particularly from the US, could derail other global manufacturing supply chains and beyond, as a range of raw materials are extracted across Xinjiang, including coal, iron, zinc, chrome, nickel, copper, molybdenum, and tungsten, which could restrict critical supply.
Even so, by using intelligence monitoring tools and mapping sub-tier supplier networks across the world, companies can turn risk into a competitive advantage. To find out more about the latest restriction developments and proactive solutions, download the report.
