US Presidential Election 2020 – Impact on Global Economic Sanctions
This event covers the following:
Maritime & Trade
Maritime Regulation, Risk and Compliance

The winner of the US Presidential election will have a significant impact on global economic sanctions over the next four years. A Joe Biden victory is already raising key questions for those working in compliance and regulatory affairs as to how a change of President will affect specific sanctions programs relating to Iran, North Korea and others. Will the election outcome lead to a hardening of the current approach or will there be a change in direction?

The current sanctions policies regarding Iran, numerous Executive Orders on Venezuela, the identification of new missile procurement networks in North Korea, political developments in Hong Kong and tariffs and restrictions on Chinese business entities have all added to the long-list of challenges for sanctions compliance teams since 2016.

This IHS Markit and Institute for International Banking Law & Practice event will take the pulse of the last four years of sanctions policy and will examine how this may shift under a Biden presidency. Some of the key talking points of this event; a continued expansion of sanctions, will we witness a tightening of legislation in regard to Iran or a resurrection of the JCPOA, will tariffs and restrictions on Chinese trade and business ramp-up or revert to their pre-2016 features and continuing tensions with Maduro's government in Venezuela and its impact on oil trade?

Our esteemed guests from business and legal will discuss these topics and their impact on sanctions;
