Navigating the evolving global trade trends: The rise of Asia-centric trade systems

Friday, 5 November 2021
9:00-11:00 (Singapore Time)

Join us for this webinar with our experts for an insight into some of the key developments in the constantly evolving international trade landscape:

Part 1 – U.S. and China trade tensions: China’s perspective
Prof. Gao will discuss China’s changing perspective on the WTO since its accession, its responses to the U.S. trade war including export control law, unreliable entity list, and its trade relationships with the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Part 2 – Beyond tax treaties: incorporating free trade agreements and investment treaties into corporate structuring exercises
Most corporate structuring is done with tax planning in mind. However, this session will explore and advocate the need for the incorporation of FTAs and investment treaties into corporate structuring exercises. The session will also use case studies to illustrate how combining all these considerations into corporate structuring exercises can reap tangible benefits for businesses operating in the Asia Pacific region.
