As the global community continues to grapple with the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Atlantic Council is open for business. Our business, meetings, and events, however, are occurring virtually. For more information, please read an update from our President and CEO.
Please join the Atlantic Council’s GeoEconomics Center and Kharon for a distinguished panel on the expanding role of export controls in the transatlantic community. We will explore recent changes to these regimes, their impact on the private sector and what’s coming next. This is the third session of the Center’s Regulation in Foreign Policy roundtable series.
On Monday, April 26 at 2:00pm, we will be joined by Matt Borman, Acting Assistant Secretary for Export Administration at the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, and Chris Chew, Head of Export Control Policy at UK’s Department for International Trade’s Export Control Joint Unit. Kit Conklin, Director of Global Client Engagement at the research and data analytics firm Kharon, will present several case studies on the impact of specific export controls. Annie Simpson Froehlich, Director and Senior Counsel for Sanctions and Export at Carrier Corporation and non-resident senior fellow with the GeoEconomics Center, will share a paper on the challenges of compliance in the US regulatory environment. Read it before the event here.
This roundtable will be under Chatham House rules and focus on the specific regulatory amendments, such as the Military Intelligence End-User rule, the impact on financial markets as well as sensitive supply chains, and how cooperation will develop among the US and its closest partners.
The Regulation in Foreign Policy roundtable series is held monthly and tackles the most pressing issues on the regulatory agenda in the foreign policy context of the US and its allies. In May, we will discuss tax reform for digital firms and other corporates.
