Social credit will affect foreign firms in China

Monday, September 2, 2019


China's corporate social credit system.


The corporate social credit system (CSCS) is now at a decisive stage as the authorities ramp up implementation and expansion nationwide. All companies, including foreign enterprises, will have to participate.

  • The information made publicly available on CSCS platforms will be useful in evaluating the trustworthiness of business partners in China.
