Modern Economic Statecraft Tools and Geopolitical Risk: Sanctions, Export Controls, Investment Screening, and Supply Chain Security
Blank Rome partner Anthony Rapa will serve as the presenter for Practising Law Institute’s live one-hour briefing, Modern Economic Statecraft Tools and Geopolitical Risk: Sanctions, Export Controls, Investment Screening, and Supply Chain Security, being held Monday, April 17, 2023, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT.
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
The U.S. government implements a range of measures in response to geopolitical and national security threats, including economic sanctions, export controls, screening of inbound foreign investment and (potentially, as currently proposed) certain outbound investment, import and supply chain restrictions, industrial policy, and reorientation of preferential trade arrangements towards allies.
This constellation of policies falls under the rubric of “economic statecraft,” whereby a country’s government uses economic tools to achieve foreign policy goals and strategic objectives without resorting to the use of force. Notable examples include the U.S. policy response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the U.S.-China strategic competition.
Understanding the impacts of such economic statecraft tools is of paramount importance for those involved in cross-border trade and investment, and related business planning.
