Making Sense of US and Chinese Legal Developments Pertaining to Hong Kong—a Look at the Hong Kong National Security Law, Hong Kong Autonomy Act, and the Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization

China’s new Hong Kong National Security Law is being implemented, and foreign companies with operations in Hong Kong are trying to keep pace with developments and adjust their business operations appropriately. The new Chinese law has also prompted swift punitive responses from the US Congress and President Trump, with business implications of their own. Please join the US-China Business Council for a discussion with Tara Joseph, president of AmCham Hong Kong, Darryl Nirenberg, partner at Steptoe & Johnson, and Maggie Lewis, professor of law at Seton Hall. They will discuss on-the-ground developments in Hong Kong, as well as legal context and political implications of China’s new law, the United States’ new law, and President Trump’s recently announced executive order.
