North American Free Trade & Investment Report

In this article, Larry Christensen discusses whether the stars are aligned for meaningful export control reform as never before given President Obama’s support for reform. Most of the recommendations the industry supports can be accomplished without legislation. However, past efforts have failed to produce results. Moreover, the process is just at the beginning, much work needs to be done, many pitfalls remain ahead, and the window of opportunity is short. Nevertheless, he argues, private industry needs to make its views known to both the White House and the Congress and each corporation needs to understand and evaluate recommended changes in light of their business and compliance models.
