Why Attend This Summit?

The Export Control Law of the Peoples Republic of China was approved and took effect in 2020 and the Counter Foreign Sanctions Law was promulgated and took effect in 2021. The white paper Chinas Export Controls was published recently and includes the four main sections: Chinas basic position on export controls, Ongoing improvements to the legal and regulatory system for export controls, Modernizing the export control system, Promoting international exchanges and cooperation. All of the above shows that China is paying close attention to export controls and determined to make efforts on its further improvement.


The establishment and implementation of Chinas export control system is generated in a complicated and difficult international circumstance. Thus, Chinese enterprises in this context also need to establish and implement an internal export control management program complying with the international environment. Based on this, Ficient Global is going to organize The 4th Global Export Control (China) Summit,  inviting experts from well-known law firms and consulting firms, senior export control and trade compliance managers from enterprises to share their insights and practical experience on export control systems, significant global export controls events, as well as determination of issues in practice and current situation of global export controls, etc. The summit will not only help participants have an overall understanding of the global export control systems, but also have a deeper comprehension of compliance revealed by export control knowledges, events and cases, moving the topics from a macro-level into practice, which enterprises can use for their export compliance program in real situations and improve the operation and the development under the current global export control environment.

Why Attend This Summit?

In 2023, export control and sanctions policies frequently changed and the enforcements were strengthened. Meanwhile, the global trade and economic environment and situation remains complicated and uncertain. Thus, preventing risks of export control and sanctions, dealing with risks and problems, and enhancing compliance management are the constant subjects for enterprises in China. However, more and more challenges and new concepts are being added into these subjects because of the high frequency of policy updates and the unpredictable international environment. Based on this, Ficient Global is going to hold The 6th Global Export Control and Sanction (China) Summit. Experts from renowned law firms and consulting firms, as well as senior trade compliance managers from enterprises will be invited as speakers. The summit will not only review and analyze the domestic and international policy updates about export control and sanctions, but also take a deep dive into the compliance risks combined with case studies. The summit will also summarize the key points in compliance work and share specific approaches in practice, in order to help participants figure out the current situation and trends of global export control/sanctions.
