Trade in 2018 - What's Ahead?

April 19, 2018 • Webinar

Starts: 11:00 AM (EDT)
Ends: 12:30 PM (EDT)

From the Section 232 national security tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to the ongoing NAFTA re-negotiation, the Trump administration is seeking to implement significant changes in international trade policy and enforcement. Economic sanctions on Russia continue to expand, the future is far from clear regarding Iran, and perhaps North Korea is coming into focus. A new Asia trade agreement without the United States, and a bumpy road ahead for Brexit all make for uncertainty and the need for enhanced trade risk management. Join us as we identify the international trade risks and opportunities likely to continue and grow in 2018.

Our Crowell & Moring team will discuss predictions for the remainder of the year, with cross-border insights from our practitioners in the U.S., London, and Brussels. Topics will include likely trends and issues in the U.S. and EU including:

  • Trade policy developments: Section 232, NAFTA renegotiation, and trade remedies
  • Sanctions in Year Two of the Trump administration: Russia, Iran, North Korea, and beyond\
  • Anti-money laundering (AML) and beneficial ownership
  • Import and customs: enforcement, drawback, Misc. Tariff Bill, and trade preference programs (GSP)  
  • Supply chain risk management: blockchain, forced labor, the U.K. Modern Slavery Act, and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • Europe: Brexit, the EU’s 4th AML Directive, and the EU/U.K. AML enforcement
  • CFIUS: how significant is the new legislation? 
  • Export controls: Wither reform?
