We are very pleased to present you our 16th annual Global Trade and Supply Chain Webinar Series entitled, "2019: What's Up in International Trade? Keeping up to Speed on Evolving Challenges". The series includes the latest international trade developments including updates on Trade Wars, Trade Agreement negotiations and key customs, export controls and sanctions developments. In addition to our usual topics of customs and export controls/sanctions, we also cover foreign investment review regimes around the world and emerging compliance risks in areas such as Human Rights and Forced Labour.
This year, we also expand our program of basic customs webinars to cover the areas of export controls and sanctions. The Basic program will be primarily aimed at participants who are new to Global Trade and/or those who would like a refresher.
Terrie Gleason, a partner in our San Francisco, CA office and Head of the Firm's Global Customs Focus Group, and Jenny Revis, a partner in our London office and co-leader of the EMEA Customs practice, will moderate these webinars and be joined by experts from across our global network.
All webinars will begin at 11:00 AM Eastern (US) and are scheduled to run approximately 90 minutes. If you reside in a different time zone and wish to verify your time - please click here.
