Current and Emerging Trends in China

A USCBC member survey released in September 2014 stated that 86% of companies surveyed said they were concerned about China’s competition enforcement activities. Nearly 30% said they were concerned that they would be targeted by future investigations. In the last 12 months, terrorist incidents in China and attacks on people of Chinese decent traveling in South East Asia have become a growing concern to travel risk managers. This exposure is set to increase as supply chains lengthen and more mainland based employees take on regional roles. H&A will discuss these and other emerging trends that are of a concern to senior management and corporate security directors operating in China today.
