Protecting Your Company From Danger Abroad: Issues to be Wary of When Doing Business InternationallyPlease join your NVTC colleagues for an executive briefing on essential issues for any company that is doing business on foreign shores. Nearly every technology company will find something useful in this 90-minute presentation, as international issues are increasingly affecting businesses across the region and C-level actors need to be informed to make the right calls. Our panel of experts will address:
- IP issues you might encounter around the globe - if you thought learning Mandarin was tough, try the different approaches to intellectual property in different countries! Knowing some of the basic differences and advanced issues can save face for your company, not to mention money and opportunity.
- Government trade and support - the committee has invited a special guest from the government who can discuss how the government trade apparatus is set up to help your company, and what you need to know about when the government gets involved in international trade issues.
- Export control issues - many companies unwittingly cross the line of an export control violation without even realizing it might be an issue. How can your company avoid being entangled in these issues, and what happens if you end up having one nonetheless? A lot of attention is being paid to these issues, and you should be aware of potential issues before they arise.
