      US bans solar panel component imports from China

      US imposed a ban on imports from China of key components for making solar panels, Reuters reported. The deals with Chinese-based Hoshine Silicon Industry Co were halted over forced labor allegations. The US Commerce Department separately restricted all exports to Hoshine, three other Chinese companies and the paramilitary Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps, with arguments that they were involved with the forced labor of Uyghurs and other Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang.
