Does your supply chain touch Myanmar in any way?  If so, this webinar on doing business in Myanmar in the midst of new sanctions will be of interest.

Recent political developments in Myanmar have led to new sanctions by the US, UK and EU. As a result concerns around doing business in Myanmar and the challenges of doing business in, or with, Myanmar have increased.

To help address these concerns, we would like to invite you to Baker McKenzie’s webinar on Doing Business in Myanmar in the Midst of New Sanctions which will be held on March 23, 2021 from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm (GMT + 8).

In this webinar, our speakers will provide insights on the following:

  • Overview of US, UK and EU sanctions and their application to Myanmar
  • Implications of the relevant sanctions on businesses currently operating in Myanmar (including corporate groups with branches or subsidiaries in Myanmar)
  • Implications of the relevant sanctions on the provision of goods and services directly or indirectly to and from Myanmar
  • Implications on, and structuring of, M&A transactions involving sanctioned countries (for e.g. where targets or JV entities have a Myanmar presence) and contractual considerations such as warranties on compliance with laws
