The report noted that Beijing has recently imposed a wide range of new regulations covering cybersecurity, counter-intelligence activities and data management, emphasizing the need to expand national security measures. However, the relevant regulations have worried some foreign companies, and they are unsure how the implementation of the new regulations will affect their operations.

Chohova said she learned that European companies in mainland China have expressed concerns about “uncertainty” in decision-making and interpretation of laws and regulations by mainland regulators. Johova noted that the language of the rules is vague, for example, it does not clearly define what “significant information” is or what circumstances companies must face when transferring information externally.

Johova said this was not a criticism of Beijing’s rules, but that the European side expected the rules to be “clear and relatively easy to follow”. Johova also alleged that foreign companies face “lengthy procedures” when doing business in mainland China, a process sometimes taking 45 days and often lasting longer.

Chohova said that in talks with Beijing officials she had emphasized that European companies face increasingly difficult business conditions in mainland China and were concerned about the impact of AI technology on human rights in Xinjiang.
