Richard Mojica Quoted on Forced Labor Investigation in The New York Times

"Senate Inquiry Finds BMW Imported Cars Tied to Forced Labor in China"

New York Times

Richard Mojica offered his perspective in this New York Times article, detailing the congressional investigation which found that BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, and Volkswagen purchased parts originating from a Chinese supplier flagged by the United States for participating in forced labor programs. The U.S. "has not yet detained automobiles and automotive components in meaningful quantities," Mojica said. However, an uptick in federal enforcement could encourage carmakers and their suppliers to consider tracing their supply networks with more urgency.
