In order to mitigate the impact of the ongoing Sino-US trade dispute, many Hong Kong and mainland companies have opted to optimise their supply chain by adjusting their production strategies in order to reduce their exposure to the punitive tariffs, while also looking to further explore the sales opportunities emerging in the domestic market. Despite their differing approaches, all the strategies on offer have a common focus – regulatory compliance. This, of course, is an issue that has implications not just for manufacturing practices, but also for the market access ultimately granted for finished products.
