Broadcast timings on 19 July 2017

On Monday, 5 June 2017, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut diplomatic ties with Qatar and moved to close off access to the Gulf country, with a boycott on air, sea or land traffic to and from Qatar, with other Arab and African countries following their lead. The political and economic boycott has had major implications for international trade.

Baker McKenzie’s Global International Trade team invites you to a one-hour webinar on Wednesday, 19 July 2017, to provide insights on the latest developments, discuss the legal and commercial impact of the boycott on doing business with Qatar and/or Qatari nationals, and consider how businesses can ensure their operations continue to run as smoothly as possible.
