Cisco “Erroneously” Bans Non-Essential Travel To China

With China reportedly contemplating its “retaliation” alternatives after Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Canada at the request of the DOJ – albeit without anyone in the Trump administration seemingly aware of this – US companies are starting to sweat if China will respond in kind, and are actively reconsidering sending executives to China.

As Bloomberg reports, one such company is US tech giant Cisco, which according to unconfirmed social media reports was restricting non-essential travel by U.S.-based employees into China. However, once news of the tentative travel ban emerged, the California-based maker of computer networking gear told Bloomberg the email was sent to some employees “in error” and that normal business travel to China continues.
