Gary is back from Beijing where he met with China’s AQSIQ to address U.S. compliance with Decree 177. Meetings with AQSIQ were successful in gaining acceptance of the existing U.S. list of exporting firms and progress on development of further clarification of compliance needs.
During the week, Gary also met with and established an understanding with The China Group Companies Association (CGCA, www.cgcpa.org) intended to provide for joint work to improve utilization of information systems to facilitate trade and regulatory compliance. As a result, NAEGA has taken under consideration and will be reporting on the work of a CGCA sponsored think tank: International Institute for the Development of Multinational Institutions (www.idmni.org).
Gary’s trip report will soon be available. Please contact Gary if you would like to discuss.
