Supply Chain Problems in Xinjiang

Can you say for certain that there is no forced labor in your supply chain? The Fair Labor Association’s Shelly Han will discuss this question as well as the practical implications of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol ban on cotton imported from the Xinjiang region of China. What happens internally in China could cause an impact beyond China’s borders, so it is important to hear the latest on this topic from an expert with over twenty years’ experience.
