China's regulatory environment can be challenging to navigate.  Recently, the enforcement of registration requirements for foreign non-governmental organizations (FNGOs) has impacted promotional programs for several USDA Cooperators. BCI's Market Development Team has been at the forefront of this issue for its clients and, in July 2019, successfully completed the registration process in China on behalf of a client.

BCI President James Christie traveled to China to receive the client's registration certificate, meet with Shanghai Public Security Bureau officials, and discuss the issue with the USDA's Foreign Agricultural Service. BCI is pleased with this successful outcome and is glad to see the client's promotional program in China resume with this important requirement now addressed.

For questions regarding China's FNGO requirements, please contact Sarah Gelpi, Assistant Director of BCI's Market Development team, to assist at 916-492-7062.
