Event Description:
The Surrey Board of Trade is hosting this meet & greet with the Sanctions Operations team at Global Affairs Canada from Ottawa, including Deputy Director, Neelu Shanker, and Senior Advisor, Jonathan Brasnett for Sanctions Operations at Global Affairs Canada. They will be available to answer any questions and discuss confidentially any sensitive questions you may have, after the session.

This will be a roundtable on the recent developments in global economic sanctions and the key questions to consider when thinking about your transaction strategy and compliance culture in the context of the international sanctions framework.

Economic sanctions are among the top choice of foreign policy response tools in North America and in the EU and are increasingly imposed on countries and stakeholders whose actions conflict with international law or foreign policy goals.
