WIT-NC & PAEI: Annual Lunar New Year Event

February 28 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Welcome to the Year of the Dragon! Together with our co-host PAEI, WIT-NC invites you to join us at Adobe’s high-tech Townhall Park for one of our most-loved events, our annual evening with longtime WIT-NC sponsor Baker McKenzie. Celebrate the Lunar New Year over drinks and a delicious dinner, hear all the latest China trade developments from both the US and China perspective, and join us as we honor John McKenzie for his many contributions to the international trade community and congratulate him on his transition to retirement.

John McKenzie, Iris Zhang, and Frank Pan will lead a lively discussion and Q&A. Planned topics include:

  • How rising tensions between the United States and China are creating conflict of law challenges for US exporters;
  • What compliance strategies can help US exporters meet their increased Know Your customer responsibilities regarding China;
  • What’s new regarding China’s export control and anti-foreign sanctions laws and implementing regulations;
  • What practical steps companies can take to comply with the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA), including importer due diligence for suppliers in the Xinjiang Region;
  • And more!
