The US House of Representatives voted to ignore a invoice on Wednesday that would ban items produced with the aid of the compelled workers from China’s Xinjiang region, per Bloomberg.
The measure is aimed at punishing China for the alleged oppression of the Uyghur Muslims except agencies can show that they have now not been made with pressured labor.
The consignment now goes to the Senate for passage, the place it already has bipartisan support.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated in a statement, “The Administration will work carefully with Congress to enforce this invoice to make sure world provide chains are free of pressured labor, whilst concurrently working to on-shore and third-shore key provide chains, along with semiconductors and easy energy.”
