Title: [FREE WEBINAR] Doing Business with The United States: A Panel Discussion on U.S. Import Bans on Malaysian Palm Oil and Rubber Gloves

         

Date/ Time: 30 April 2021 | 9 am - 11 am 

Free Webinar via ZOOM Platform

Course Description:

The United States is an important market for Malaysian products. For Malaysian companies with global ambitions, the U.S. is crucial as it is the world’s premier market economy with a large consumer base. The extent of Covid-19’s impact on Malaysian exports to the U.S. is unknown. What is clear, however, is that the recent U.S. import bans on certain Malaysian products are harming Malaysia’s reputation and economy. Using import bans against two major Malaysian palm oil companies as the focus, the panelists will bring various perspectives -- political, legal and business -- to this development. The panel discussion is designed to:-

  • Encourage participants to share ideas about the responses to the import bans and the management of such a crisis
  • Deepen the participants’ appreciation of political aspects of U.S. economic and trade sanctions
  • Provide a forum to discuss the role of civil society and its ideals, focusing on the activities of western-based NGOs in their efforts to eliminate forced labor practices
