As sanctions ease and economic opportunities grow, dialogue between government officials and the private sector is critical for a smooth transition and healthy investment climate.
Join YPFP on September 8, 2016 for a half-day conference focused on lessons learned in newly opening economies (Iran, Cuba, and Burma). This experience will provide a forum where policymakers and the actors they regulate can identify hurdles they experience as they implement and react to changing sanctions programs. The conference will feature a mix of government officials, business leaders, and legal experts.
The event will include a "couples counseling" session during which leaders in government and the private sector will discuss challenges they commonly face in new economies and a case study of recent investment in Cuba. Participating organizations will include the National Security Council, Department of Treasury, Department of Commerce, Department of State, Export-Import Bank, and many leading private sector companies.*
This event is open to the public, but space is limited so please RSVP below. The conference will be off the record and closed to the press.
