    Event Synopsis:
    The year 2018 has seen significant export controls and sanctions developments, and based on what we have already seen, further changes are expected to continue under the Trump administration.

    The President’s trade wars with China and other allied countries continue to escalate. This implies the need for businesses to prepare themselves for the shifting policies brought by retaliatory tariffs. Moreover, the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act (FIRRMA), a bill which aims to reform the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), is also receiving significant attention. Companies should be prepared to fine-tune their own policies and activities and ensure that they reflect current U.S. export controls and sanctions to avoid risks and legal pitfalls.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will help companies and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent enforcement trends under U.S. sanctions and export controls. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective compliance policies.

    Key topics include:
    • Export Controls and Trade Sanctions: Recent Enforcement Trends
    • U.S. Trade Wars
    • CFIUS and FIRRMA
    • Risk Issues and Pitfalls
    • Best Compliance Practices
