Doing Business in the Middle East: What a U.S. Trade Practitioner Should Know

The major economies of the Middle East – including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar – have recently implemented policies and regulations that directly impact trade in these economies. This webinar will focus on what companies that trade globally must be aware of while trading with these economies. A brief outline of trade agreements will also be included. In addition, the webinar will also provide a brief overview of the UAE's new export control regime, the first of its kind in the Middle East.
