How do U.S. Economic sanctions impact Asia and the Middle East?

On 22 October, we will be hosting a seminar on U.S. economic sanctions, looking at how the U.S economic sanctions will impact Asia and the Middle East.

U.S. economic sanctions and national security laws can have far-reaching effects on businesses in Asia. U.S. sanctions restrictions, including with Iran and other countries, are continually evolving and are applied to non-U.S. companies by the U.S. government, increasing the compliance challenges for businesses. In addition, U.S. national security reviews of foreign investment into the United States conducted by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) are also becoming increasingly stringent and can affect the ability of Asian companies to invest in certain sectors in the United States.

Please join us and members of our U.S. International Trade & Investment team for a discussion of recent U.S. economic sanctions developments and recent U.S. national security reviews of foreign investments.

Discussion topics will include:

  • The status of the current Iran nuclear deal, what is expected to change, and the impact on companies in countries
  • Recent trends in U.S. national security reviews and what to expect when seeking to invest in strategic sectors in the United states
  • Explore practical considerations and common questions faced by business subject to U.S. economic sanctions or investing in sensitive sectors in the United States

Our speakers will be available to answer questions after the seminar. If however, you would like to arrange a separate meeting with a member of our team, please do let us know.

We hope you can join us.

Please contact us to register.
