The pandemic has ushered in a new era of global distancing, severely impacting international production, trade, investments and travel. The virus will likely leave its legacy for years to come. 

In this program, a panel of distinguished international business executives and lawyers dissect the economic impact of the pandemic and the recovery options that are just beginning to emerge.

Update on FCPA and Foreign Antibribery Statutes (Ethics)

  • Anti-bribery and corruption compliance continue to be some of the greatest challenges that companies are facing, both domestically and abroad. Join a moderated discussion with general counsel as they explain how the FCPA is viewed within corporations and provide insights into managing compliance with antibribery statutes in the US and globally.

International Tax in the Age of COVID

  • In response to the severe economic damage of Covid-19, governments around the world implemented unique stimulus measures, which will have a profound impact on international tax and budgeting. Andrew McKinley, senior manager at Ernst & Young’s international tax services practice, ticks off the many ways that the coronavirus is disrupting attempts to create global tax schemes. 

The Fracturing of the Global Supply Chain

  • The global supply chain is broken. As a result of the coronavirus, much of the contract manufacturing in China has been severely disrupted, which has had a significant impact on manufacturing around the world. This session attempts to answer the question – what will it take to fix what has been broken?

Foreign Direct Investment Turned Upside Down

  • The Coronavirus has upset traditional paths for foreign direct investments, resulting in more limitations and increased scrutiny, not just in the US but around the world.  Learn how this trend could negatively impact recovery efforts for global economies. 

Immigration Disrupted 

  • Immigration was a hot topic before COVID; it’s even hotter now with continued travel and entry restrictions enforced at numerous countries.  Joel Pfeffer takes a look at current trends and how they are impacting US and global business.

Coronavirus: China & Asia

  • The disruption of China’s manufacturing network and slowdown of its economy has had a ripple effect globally. International companies across nearly every industry are confronting a stark reality: business will not go on as usual. This thought-provoking discussion focuses on the role of China in Asia as the U.S. is less involved and dissects current trade trends.
