As the only comprehensive, practical event of its kind in the Unites States, ACI is pleased to announce the highly anticipated 6th Annual U.S.-China Trade Controls Conference, scheduled for November 13–14, 2024 in Washington, DC.

Considering increasing geopolitical risks and intensifying strategic advanced computing competition with China, the U.S. government continues to ramp up enforcement efforts of China export controls and economic sanctions in unprecedented ways. Greater interagency coordination is also expected, which may result in more previously unseen compliance risk.

At the same time, China is a key US business partner, so US/China trade relations must remain open, to a point, creating a complicated dichotomy for U.S. multinational companies.

With so much at stake, don’t miss out on invaluable, strategic guidance for updating your compliance programs and mitigating heightened enforcement risks.
