Global Trade Webinar: U.S. Sanctions on Iran and what it means for your business
- This event has passed.
In addition to giving an overview of the status of sanctions on Iran, the webinar/seminar will also provide the opportunity to discuss possible legal ramifications and implications for the business community as well as what resources to keep on hand to stay up-to-date. Even those businesses that do not trade with Iran right now should attend/listen in, as some ramifications for U.S. businesses are not as clear cut.
