Global Trade Economic and Regulatory Outlook

sponsorsJoin us for an afternoon of updates on the latest global trade economic, regulatory and compliance trends impacting your company’s international business! Our program will begin with a global economic outlook that will look at key market trends and their impact on international trade.

The event will include a panel discussion that will delve deep into emerging trends in export controls and economic sanctions, including expanded controls on “emerging and foundational” technologies, recent changes to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), evolving compliance threats related to China and Russia, including joint enforcement efforts between the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) and the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), other enforcement trends, the outlook for additional export control reforms, and much more.

The program will also feature a dialogue with Matthew Axelrod, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Export Enforcement. Assistant Secretary Axelrod will address new and sweeping changes in export enforcement policy, including increases in penalties, changes in handling of Voluntary Self Disclosures (VSDs), public release of charging letters, and other anticipated developments as BIS implements a stronger enforcement regime.

The program will be capped off by networking reception for attendees to join in the conversation and connect with global trade practitioners from throughout the region!
