    Event Synopsis:
    Several active developments in the U.S. economic sanctions have taken place in 2017. These include the new sanctions law against Russia, the modified and strengthened sanctions to Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba, and the continued aggressive enforcement of existing sanctions regulations. Moving deeper into 2018, potential regulatory and policy changes are likely to continuously impact the ever-evolving landscape of U.S. sanctions.

    In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with practical and timely understanding of country-specific U.S. economic sanctions. They will offer best compliance practices and guidance on establishing risk management programs based on the current issues and developments in sanctions.
