The world has become more complex, and the constantly evolving geopolitical and macroeconomic landscapes require local and multinational companies conducting trading and logistics activities to rethink their supply chain model across multiple jurisdictions. Companies operating in the Middle East face many regulatory and commercial challenges and are subject to increasingly complex trade compliance and sanctions risks, particularly in relation to their cross-border supply chains.

Baker McKenzie’s international trade compliance lawyers are pleased to invite you to an interactive seminar in Dubai and Abu Dhabi sharing insights on how to manage trade compliance risks and optimize supply chains. Our discussions will focus on:

  • Trade compliance (including mitigating third-party risk);
  • Embargoes and trade sanctions;
  • Efficient cross-border supply chains (including taking advantage of free trade agreements); and
  • Customs and tax compliance (including the recently introduced VAT regime in the UAE and Saudi Arabia).

This seminar is FREE of charge and we hope you will be able to join us. Please click below to register. For further information, please contact Jenny Medina.

One-to-one meetings
Our lawyers will be available for one-to-one meetings on 5 & 6 February 2018 to discuss specific trade issues you may have. Please contact us via email if you wish to set up a personal appointment as the number of meetings will be limited.
