Event Synopsis:
With the ever perplexed trade regulations and high competition in the marketplace, companies who aim to thrive in their global trade business should start pinning strategic international trade compliance in their corporate goals. As non-compliance with trade rules may lead to severe consequences such as loss of exporting or government contracting privileges, penalties, audits, seizures and even, in extreme cases, imprisonment, it is crucial for companies to have a clear understanding of the existing trade regulations and economic sanctions. Enhanced compliance programs can provide a competitive edge, especially for companies in government procurement supply chains, and may also help in optimizing global trade operations and mitigating litigation risks.

In this two-hour live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends; critical issues and best practices with respect to International Strategic Trade Compliance. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing effective trade strategies while ensuring compliance with applicable laws.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
- International Trade Compliance
- Recent Compliance Issues and Challenges
- Trends and Competition Implications
- Export Control Management
- Best Compliance Practices
