Foreign Correspondents Ep.272
Beijing winter games face host of challenges

With just three weeks until the winter games in Beijing, virus control isn’t the only challenge that China is facing. After announcing a diplomatic boycott of the games, the U.S. passed a bill banning imports from the Chinese region of Xinjiang that were made with forced labor. It also added several Chinese tech companies to its trade blacklist, citing their alleged support of China’s surveillance of ethnic minority groups. Meanwhile, a number of international brands such as Sam’s Club and H&M have suffered a consumer backlash in China for voicing their opinion on Xinjiang. As international pressure over Beijing’s human rights records grows, corporate sponsors of the winter games are left with the dilemma of appeasing the Chinese market while protecting their global reputation. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to discuss recent developments surrounding the upcoming games in Beijing.
