The continued tension between the U.S. and China remains one of the most significant issues affecting global trade. The changing trade relationship between two of the largest economies in the world has profound implications, requiring companies to tread carefully through the minefield of conflicting U.S. and China trade laws and regulations.
Join us to learn how U.S.-China trade tensions are impacting trade in goods and services and access to global capital and technology, and how to make sense of the latest Chinese export controls and sanctions developments.
