Detailed About MCQs

The US Senate has recently passed legislation to ban the import of products from China’s Xinjiang region, as the US has been condemning China for genocide against Uyghurs and other Muslim groups. Called the Uyghur Forced Labour Prevention Act, it assumes goods manufactured in Xinjiang are made with forced labour and therefore banned under the 1930 Tariff Act unless otherwise certified by US authorities. The current rule bans the import of goods if there is reasonable evidence of forced labour.
