Barbara D. Linney will be speaking as part of a panel on the upcoming webinar, hosted by the Canadian Association of Importers and Exporters (I.E. Canada), "Economic Sanctions Against Russia - What Does That Mean For Canadian Companies?" on Friday, December 12, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EST.
Economic sanctions against Russia are presenting significant challenges for Canadian firms doing business abroad, including those who are not normally active in that region. Canada has been among the most aggressive and outspoken countries when it comes to dealings with Russia. Canadian firms must also be aware of and comply with the sanctions and export controls imposed by the United States and other governments.
Understanding and mitigating these compliance and reputational risks in international operations is an important competitive advantage for exporters. This practical webinar will cover the critical components of the economic sanctions regime, address potential traps for the unwary and discuss effective risk mitigation and compliance strategies.
