White House extends Hong Kong sanctions

BRIEFING ROOM

Notice on the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Hong Kong

JULY 07, 2021•PRESIDENTIAL ACTIONS

On July 14, 2020, by Executive Order 13936, the President declared a national emergency pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 etseq.) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States constituted by the situation with respect to Hong Kong.   

The situation with respect to Hong Kong, including recent actions taken by the People’s Republic of China to fundamentally undermine Hong Kong’s autonomy, continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.  For this reason, the national emergency declared on July 14, 2020, must continue in effect beyond July 14, 2021.  Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13936 with respect to the situation in Hong Kong.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.
                             

JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.

THE WHITE HOUSE,
July 7, 2021.
