A Retiring Glance At Trade – Past, Present And Future
As my tenure at UK Trade & Investment draws to a close, it’s time for a little reflection…
Hear about significant updates to current trading practices.
Getting the essentials right to trade effectively and profitably in today’s global marketplace is now more important than ever and you are invited to join emita for an evening seminar on Wednesday 16 February 2011 at which we will present significant updates to current trading practices.
Whether you’re a novice or experienced in international trade, this event has something to offer you – from the important Incoterms® 2010 publication to the implications of the new Bribery Act for your business.
Our guest speakers will address topics that are fundamental to your success in trading overseas, sharing their wide ranging knowledge on:
· Changes to Incoterms® rules which take effect from 1 January 2011 – gain an insight into these changes and grasp an understanding of how to use terms such as Ex Works, F.O.B. and C.I.F. appropriately.
· Managing foreign exchange exposure – recognise your business’s financial exposures and receive practical advice on the solutions and developing a strategy.
· The Bribery Act 2010 – failing to prevent people associated with your business from using bribery will be a criminal offence from April 2011. If you don’t put in place adequate measures, you may be liable for an unlimited fine. Explore what you need to do to defend your business.
You will also have the opportunity to tap into our speakers’ expertise by discussing your individual issues or concerns with them during one to one meetings prior to the event.
Don’t miss out on the practical support on offer and book your place today!
