DJI on the Banned US Trade List – Wont Affect the Company Day to Day

The US Commerce Department recently announced that DJI is now on the US Trade Ban list.

DJI has since come out and stated that Americans will be able to continue to buy and use its products “normally” despite the companies presence on the list.

This ban only affects the companies from purchasing parts from American companies, so I’m assuming DJI saw this ban coming and already had a plan B supply chain in place ready to go at any time.

I’m not entirely sure how a drone company is helping to support human rights abuses in China. It seems like if this is the case then all Chinese companies will be in the same position!
