Companies warn of delays in China shipments as US bans Xinjiang imports

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act presupposes that all goods produced in China’s western region of Xinjiang, or by entities affiliated with the government there, are manufactured by forced labor and block companies from importing such products.
