Doing Trade with Russia, Cuba and Iran: Webinar Recap

Doing Trade with Russia, Cuba and Iran: Webinar Recap
20 Apr 2017

A recent webinar by Global Chamber® on March 28, 2017 shared information about the opportunities, risks, and guidelines for doing trade with Russia, Cuba and Iran. This webinar was hosted by Global Chamber® Baltimore/Washington member, WCC International, and Global Chamber® Worldwide.

We learned that trade is possible with Russia, Cuba and Iran, however, anyone wishing to enter these markets must first do much up front research and homework.

Our speakers discussed the different special sanctions in place, how companies can best navigate these restrictions, and what available resources are available to assist companies interested in these markets.

Our expert speakers also reminded us of the importance to monitor these markets on an on-going basis as guidelines and rules for doing business with sanctioned countries change frequently. Thank you WCC International and all of our panelists!
