MoFo's John Smith is speaking at this year's GTR MENA conference on the session titled, "Sanctions, AML and Illicit Trade – Where do the Region’s Priorities Lie?"

About the session:

Following the geopolitical shifts of 2020, many will be wondering what the implications of a new US administration may be for Middle East trade and national security. This special interactive session will consider some of the leading issues around this, from likely changes to the robust sanctions regime and potential impact on Iran, alongside the ramifications of a more multilateralist US approach when it comes to Chinese influence across the region. The discussion will also consider new approaches to the issue of financial crime, as international pressure mounts and greater attention is paid by regulators to the need for more effective measures against sanctions violations, money laundering and illicit trade.
