China’s long-awaited, partially forgotten Unreliable Entity List has returned


History lesson: Companies placed o the  United States Department of Commerce's Entity List are subject to restrictions on buying US goods. After Huawei was placed on the list in May 2019, the Ministry of Commerce (MofCom) vowed to draw up its own Unreliable Entities List (see May 31, 2019 Tip Sheet).

  • But the list never materialized. Instead it just hung over the heads of US business like a bureaucratic sword of Damocles.
On Saturday, MofCom issued a set of provisions outlining key features of the Unreliable Entities List.

Foreign companies can end up on the list for:
  • Endangering China's national sovereignty, security, and development interests
  • Violating market principles or taking discriminatory measures against Chinese entities or individuals
Companies on the list will face the following consequences:
  • Being restricted or banned from trade with and/or investment in China
  • Entry bans for key personnel
  • Cancellation of work or residence permits for key personnel
  • Fines

Get smart: With the US sanctioning Chinese companies on seemingly daily basis, Chinese authorities are looking to build tools to retaliate.

Get smarter: Chinese authorities are hesitant to actually use the Unreliable Entity List. They are keen to attract more foreign investment – not scare away foreign companies.

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
