The US Customs and Border Patrol has blocked nearly USD 500 million worth of imports from entering American ports this year ... made "wholly or in part" by Uyghur forced labour ...

The decision comes as more Western governments are taking action against companies whose products and supply chains involve forced labour by the Uyghurs in Xinjiang ...

.... the value of blocked shipments this year has already reached nearly two-thirds of last year's figure ...
