In collaboration with our foreign law firm partners, we continue to update our chart of COVID-19 measures taken by governments around the world. The government measures in the chart include economic, labor and employment, health and safety, and export and import measures.
Today’s update includes new information as of June 1, 2020 for Canada, Chile, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom and Vietnam. The updates are bolded in the chart for ease of reference.
Most of the recent changes are extensions of certain deadlines relating to economic and labor and employment measures. More and more we are seeing that countries in Europe and many in Asia have lifted or eased quarantine and lockdown measures or have established plans to reopen the economy. Generally, export controls and import facilitation measures involving COVID-19-related health and medical goods remain the same with a few exceptions. However, we expect the export measures may change in the coming weeks.
Please see our Trump and Trade Update of April 7 for discussion of this initiative.
