Recently, the Market Supervision Bureau ("MSB") of Shanghai Qingpu District penalized a medical device distributor with a fine of RMB 50,000 (about US$ 7,200) because the distributor made a unique bribe to a "doctor" responsible for procurement of medical devices in a hospital in Nanjing City (a city about 270 kilometers away from Shanghai), Jiangsu Province.  The reason why the bribe is unique is that the bribe was not cash, but 2 bottles of famous luxurious liquor—Moutai.  The total value of the two liquors is about RMB 3,000 (about US$ 440).

A lot of articles including those from some mainstream media expressed the concern that China is setting up another Great Wall to ban the outflow of data from within China, and especially foreign-invested institutions in China must seek government approval before transferring their proprietary scientific data outside China. Some even interpreted the regulation as Chinese government’s retaliation against Trump’s trade protectionism.

Bribery is a serious offence under China’s Criminal Law.  There are ten crimes for bribery.  A unit could be the payer of a bribe; a unit (state-owned) could be the recipient of a bribe as well.  A death penalty could be imposed on the recipient of a bribe if the recipient is a governmental official.
