KPMG TradeWatch: Preparing for 2020 – Planning ahead in an uncertain trade environment

Webcast overview:

Planning for 2020 is very challenging in an uncertain trade environment. Multinational companies are navigating through changes in trade policy initiated in 2018 and 2019, as well as, preparing for a myriad of potential changes in the coming year.

During this webcast, professionals from the KPMG LLP (KPMG) Trade and Customs Services practice and Eurasia Group will discuss key trade trends to follow and how companies can prepare. Discussion topics will include:

  • Geopolitical trends affecting trade
  • Addressing potential customs issues related to Section 301, Country of origin, and the United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA)
  • Reviewing case studies on enterprise-wide tariff optimization and modeling exercises focusing on 232/301 tariffs, USMCA, Duty Drawback, and Foreign Trade Zones
  • Evaluating technology/automation options: cognitive intelligence, data lake, and more.

This webcast will be of interest to anyone concerned with the potential impact of trade and tariffs on their business, their stakeholders or their bottom line, including CEOs, CFOs, controllers, group presidents and trade and tax executives.
