This strategy provides;
• A comprehensive assessment of the risk of importing goods mined, produced, or manufactured, wholly or in part, with forced labor in the PRC;
• An evaluation and description of forced-labor schemes, UFLPA-required lists (including the UFLPA Entity List), UFLPA-required plans, and high priority sectors for enforcement;
• Recommendations for efforts, initiatives, tools, and technologies to accurately identify and trace affected goods;
• A description of how U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) plans to enhance its use of legal authorities and tools to prevent entry of goods at U.S. ports in violation of 19 U.S.C. § 1307;
• A description of additional resources necessary to ensure no goods made with forced labor enter U.S. ports;
• Guidance to importers; and
• A plan to coordinate and collaborate with appropriate nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and private-sector entities.

Of particular interest, the strategy contains a current list of entities either producing or exporting these goods, high priority sectors for enforcement, and elements of an effective due diligence system.
