Join us for our 18th Annual Global Trade and Supply Chain Webinar Series entitled, "International Trade & Developments in a World Focused on Recovery & Renewal," which 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 have also covered foreign investment review regimes around the world. This year's remaining webinars will cover export controls and sanctions, an overview of customs and imports developments in the Latin America, EU, Middle East and Russia, and managing emerging compliance risks.

This year, we expanded our program of basic customs webinars to cover the areas of export controls and sanctions. The basic program is primarily aimed at participants who are new to global trade and/or those who would like a refresher.
