The Journal of Commerce and Oceanwide, Inc. Present an Exclusive Webcast on October 22
NEWARK, NJ (October 17, 2008) - Will security take a back seat to trade facilitation and enforcement? That's the number one question for shippers when looking at the current agenda of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Importers and exporters will get answers October 22, 2008 in this free audio Webcast.
The discussion and analysis will also include a forecast of possible new directions for international trade compliance. The Webcast will be broadcast for the first time at 11:00 a.m., October 22 and will be available afterward, on demand, by registering at www.joc.com/customscompliance.
The topic is especially timely as the U.S. moves through a period of financial crisis. A panel of experts will explore the impact of the economic crisis on the trade community and compliance policy. Speakers include Ashley W. Craig, attorney with Venable LLP; noted trade consultant Frank Kelly; and Jonathan Wasserman, COO for Oceanwide, Inc., a supplier of on-demand applications for international trade management. The panel will be moderated by Alan M. Field, Senior Editor at The Journal of Commerce.
"Import/export executives know they have to improve their efficiencies to stave off some of the negative impact of the current financial upheaval," said Noreen Murray, The Journal of Commerce Shipper Group Publisher. "This free Webcast will help them establish or strengthen the procedures that reduce risk in these uncertain times."
