Embargoes, Sanctions, and Tariffs: Global Disruption and Trade Tensions

A webinar by the International Trade Club of Chicago

Presented by:

  • Ngosong Fonkem, attorney, Page Fura, P.C.

The Trump Administration, beginning in 2017, embarked on an aggressive, and largely successful, trade policy comprised of embargoes, sanctions, and tariffs. These measures have caused fissures in the global trading system and led to tensions with our trade partners. But these disruptions were minimal in comparison with the proverbial tsunami wave which the Covid-19 pandemic has caused on global trade.

This presentation shall provide an overview of the various tools used by governments to alter the strategic decisions of states and nonstate actors. China, Huawei, Iranian banks, Venezuela, and Russia will be highlighted. The presentation shall also touch on the disruptive effect of Covid-19 on international trade and how business and industry representatives can anticipate, deal with, and hopefully thrive from newly increased trade diversion.

Our presenter is an authority on international trade law and the co-author of the just published book, Trade Crash: A Primer on Surviving and Thriving in Pandemics & Global Trade Disruption.  Purchase your copy today. 

This presentation is designed for global trade practitioners, who need actionable advice and practical insight.
