Expanding operations into new territories Is There a “New Normal” and What Does it Look Like?
Expanding operations into new territories around the world has traditionally offered important commercial opportunities for multinational corporations and SMEs alike. Whereas standardization, harmonization of practices and the impact of technology have supported and accelerated the trend toward globalization, the COVID-19 pandemic marked an abrupt halt, leading to a global recession, a severe disruption of global value-chains and a sharp decrease in foreign direct investments.
While most governments have promptly acted in support their domestic economies, many are considering new rules affecting foreign investors.
This program will be looking at how those trends have evolved notably in the US and Europe, what some of those new rules are and what specific changes to look out for in particular in areas such as governance and local vs. international complexity in financial transactions, accounting, taxation and human resources.
