Global supply chains continue to falter due to the Omicron variant, the war in Ukraine, and ongoing disruption exacerbated by two years of uncertainty. Trade and supply chain professionals not only have to monitor these macro-level events, but also stay abreast of the changes happening right in their wheelhouse.
Join us for this 1-hour TradeWatch webcast as we explore how global trade and supply chains are being shaped by these events. KPMG professionals from the Trade & Customs and Supply Chain practices will bring you up to speed on the rapidly changing trade and supply chain landscapes, and what your company can do to mitigate the impact.
Topics will include:
- Russia Sanctions and Export Controls: The sanction and export control space grows more complex and challenging by the day as sanctioned parties and industries increase in size and scope.
- Forced Labor: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is becoming increasingly vigilant in its enforcement of Forced Labor laws and regulations.
- Section 301 Updates and Trade Remedy Enforcement: CBP continues to exercise increased enforcement of ADD, CVD, and 301 Exclusions.
- Port Congestion and Logistics Impact: As West Coast ports remain congested, the impact of backlogged imports continues to grow.
- Trends in Supply Chain Management: From labor and material shortages to developments in technology, supply chain management strategies must adapt quickly.
- Just-in-Time to Just-in-Case: Companies are trying to find a balance between Lean and Agile inventory management practices.
