UK government provides guidance to help digital firms engage safely and ethically with China

The UK Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) launched a website that provides guidance on managing ethical, legal and commercial matters when working in China or with Chinese companies. The website has been developed in response to demand from tech sector. It sets out key issues digital and tech SMEs should consider as they weigh the benefits and risks of commercial ventures, as well as signposting specialist sources of advice. The site complements the measures that compose a trade strategy for the UK tech industry, which include a Digital Trade Network for Asia-Pacific, and a Tech Exporting Academy to provide expert advice on areas essential to trade expansion, including regulation, intellectual property, and compliance.
