Why Attend This Summit?

Issues such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the outbreak and escalation of Russia-Ukraine conflict bring a lot of impacts and uncertainty on international trade in 2022. Logistics, supply chains, transportation, currency exchanges, finance and investments of enterprises around the world are also being affected. Therefore, officers who are responsible for import & export, such as trade compliance managers, customs specialists and related employees have to face new challenges from overall strategies and management to detailed implementation. Apart from efficiently and compliantly handling regular tasks like customs clearance, tax planning and usage of FTAs, they also need to have a higher vision, understand current complicated international trade situations, and think about and implement trade compliance from a global perspective.


Based on this, Ficient Global is going to hold The 10th Global Trade Compliance (China) Summit. Quite a few senior trade compliance managers from foreign renown multinational corporations and trade compliance experts from trade consulting firms and law firms will be invited as speakers. They will share their analysis on current trade and customs environment in different countries and regions, give updates on main trade and customs policies and interpret key points in import & export, in order to help delegates to understand the changes and trends of global trade environment, grasp the latest rules and knowledge in international trade, improve the trade compliance and avoid compliance risks.
