Please join us on February 2nd as we discuss how the new administration will affect international business environment. Some of the questions we will aim to answer are:
- Will we still be able to take advantage of arbitrage labor opportunities abroad?
- What will happen to imports & exports?
- Which industries will benefit and which will be set back by the potential of increased regulations?
- How will the lending environment change?
Our esteemed panel of speakers will include:
