A New Era For Sanctions What do they imply?

Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel & Conference Centre

The United States’ decision to impose sanctions on Russia in April and President Trump’s announcement of his intention to withdraw from the JCPOA, or the Iran nuclear agreement, and the consequent renewal of sanctions regimes, have significant implications for the international economy, given they are, perhaps, more far reaching than previous ones.

The forum will include presentations from Wladimiroff Advocaten, covering recent changes to US and EU sanctions regimes, and from Aperio Intelligence, discussing the consequences for those affected by these developments and the wider implications for Russia and Iran.
