The Future of International Business Deals:
How to Position for Long-Term Growth

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT

What are the forces transforming the new global business order? This year will see new governments assume power and usher in changes to regulations and tax policies. How can investors manage near-term volatility while being poised to take advantage of long-term opportunity?

On May 17, Bloomberg Government will convene a series of conversations on how investors can effectively deploy, protect and grow their capital in a rapidly evolving business environment. We’ll examine the impact of impending U.S. tax and regulatory reforms and the potential cascading effect on trade policy and the flow of funds around the world. We’ll discuss how global businesses can take advantage of international opportunities in the midst of current geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainties.
