Rubio: McKinsey Remains Silent on Its Work for Chinese Communist Party

Dec 10, 2020 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) following McKinsey & Company’s long overdue apology for its role in fueling America’s opioid crisis.
 
“McKinsey’s weakly worded apology for its work on behalf of the opioid industry is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to issues the American people ought to be concerned about,” Rubio said. “Many of my concerns stem from the fact that the company has been less than forthcoming — to put it mildly — when it comes to their relationship with the Chinese Communist Party. 
 
“In fact, despite working on key CCP projects like the ‘Belt and Road Initiative’ and consulting for the state-owned client that built artificial reefs the Chinese military uses in the South China Sea, McKinsey continues to maintain that it does not perform work that benefits the CCP,” Rubio continued. “McKinsey’s inability to provide clear, direct answers about its relations with the CCP, any work it may have done for the Central Military Commission of China, its work on areas of critical national interest to the United States, its involvement in the detention of ethnic minorities, the presence of Communist Party branches within the company’s very own offices in China, and many other topics should concern all Americans.”   
 
On November 13, Rubio sent a follow-up letter to McKinsey & Company’s Global Managing Partner Kevin Sneader after receiving inadequate responses — and, in some instances, no response — to the senator’s initial July 17, 2020 letter requesting information regarding McKinsey & Company’s relationship with the Chinese Government and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), including state-owned and state-run companies in China, and what impact those relationships have on McKinsey’s relationship with the United States Government.
 
“Since my original letter, dated June 17, 2020, I have received two separate responses from … the managing partner for McKinsey’s North America operations,” Rubio wrote on November 13. “Neither letter, despite their length, sufficiently addresses the purpose of my original correspondence: the long-standing and growing concerns surrounding McKinsey’s relationships with the CCP and how those relationships may impact McKinsey’s paid work for the United States Government.”
 
“I remain concerned that McKinsey & Company — either wittingly or unwittingly — is aiding the CCP’s attempt to supplant the United States and remake the international community in its own image,” Rubio continued. “We must ensure that firms working on behalf of the United States Government and U.S. companies are putting America’s interests first. McKinsey’s inability to provide clear, direct answers only exacerbates those concerns and raises serious questions as to whether our government — including the Intelligence Community — should continue to use McKinsey’s services.”
