Sinolytics, in cooperation with the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, released The Digital Hand: How China’s Corporate Social Credit System Conditions Market Actors, a comprehensive study on how profoundly China’s Corporate Social Credit System impacts international companies and what they need to do to prepare. 

We will talk with Markus Herrmann, Sinolytics' Zurich-based Director, about the Corporate Social Credit System (企业社会信用体系) and what role it plays in the major shift in China's market access regime: What is being rated by the Corporate SCS and under what are the requirements? How are sanctions and rewards applied? And what part does technology play in the monitoring and guiding of market participants' behaviour?

The study The Digital Hand can be downloaded here.
