HKSTLA Workshop (Hybrid mode) – How export/import control affects your business/ shipments

Export control refers to the regulation of the export of goods, software and technology. Some exports of dual-use goods will also be classified as strategic commodities under licensing control.

Despite of the fact that Hong Kong is a free port, export and import of some designated goods will be subject to licensing control. What is the reason behind the decision for export and import control?

In the past few years, the United States exercised more export control for export of goods to some destinations including Mainland China and Hong Kong SAR. Is there any international treaty to decide export control?

Who decides the export control and what commodity will be subject to export control? Any commodity which is under export control will be given a classification number. How does the classification number be constructed?

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore key issues in shipping, trading, and logistics with our expertise. We look forward to seeing you there.

Places are limited. Please book your seat now!!
