[New Tang Dynasty News from January 3, 2022, Beijing time]The Central Commission for Discipline Inspection of the Communist Party of China stated on Friday (December 31) that the Sam’s Club under the US retail giant Wal-Mart had “maliciously removed” Xinjiang products and demanded that Wal-Mart be “on issues of principle”. “It is not possible to “vaguely pass the test”. What is the reason behind the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection? Look at the analysis report:
Sam’s Club, a subsidiary of American retail giant Wal-Mart, has established 22 stores in mainland China since 1996.
The Epoch Times commentary pointed out that the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection issued an article hitting the Sam’s Club, showing the profound changes in China‘s domestic political and economic environment.
From the boycott of the French supermarket chain Carrefour in 2008, the boycott of Japanese automakers in 2012, to the boycott of foreign clothing brands such as H&M in 2021, and to Intel, the possibility of foreign companies in mainland China being suppressed by the CCP has become increasingly prominent. Wal-Mart will not be the last foreign company to be boycotted.
The Chinese Communist Party media “Global Times” quoted an unnamed source reporting that Sam’s Club has stopped selling Xinjiang products. However, Sam’s customer service stated that it is only temporarily out of stock and will be re-launched when it becomes available.
U.S. lawmakers and the Western public are becoming more and more concerned about the Chinese Communist government’s violation of human rights. On December 23, US President Biden signed a “Prevention of Forced Uyghur Labor Law”, which will be formally implemented after 180 days. According to the bill, any products produced by forced labor in Xinjiang, China are prohibited from entering the US market.
Some estimates say that the Xinjiang-related Act will affect nearly 120 billion U.S. dollars of Chinese merchandise exports and may fundamentally reshape the global supply chain.
Wang He, a current affairs commentator for The Epoch Times, said that the suppression of Wal-Mart highlights the CCP’s consistent thinking. Over the years, foreign companies in mainland China have been resisted from time to time by political nationalist sentiments.
