US sanctions have not yet heavily targeted China's financial institutions

China has not been heavily targeted by US financial sanctions in recent years. But bipartisan pressure is growing in the United States in support of new financial sanctions on Chinese firms and individuals to counter Beijing’s human rights abuses and suppression of prodemocracy supporters in Hong Kong. Unlike existing US sanctions, new restrictions against China risk hitting some of the world’s largest banks, with wide-ranging consequences for the US dollar and international financial markets. US officials should carefully assess the costs and benefits of escalating sanctions against major Chinese financial institutions and also consider other measures that could effectively respond to Chinese policies.

 

US sanctions already target a broad array of countries. The US list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN) catalogs people and firms engaged in terrorism, cybercrime, human rights abuses, nuclear proliferation, narcotics trafficking, and other illicit activities. When a firm or individual is placed on the SDN list, their assets held in US jurisdictions are frozen, and they face US visa restrictions and bans on dollar-based transactions. Iran, Syria, Ukraine, North Korea, and Russia have been prominent targets of recent US sanctions.
