Course Overview

In international transactions, the parties may have different values and customs; they have to adhere to different sets of governmental regulations and are subject to separate and distinct laws under disparate legal systems. So, to take a very basic example, the Terms and Conditions which are applied locally may not be enforceable internationally.

Thus a new approach and an "international outlook" is required to be incorporated into the company ethos to take account of these important factors. In addition to tendering and contractual issues which can arise in domestic transactions, the parties must also learn to deal with all manner of subjects in the international context, such as logistics, export and import regulations, differing technical standards, foreign tax issues, payment, and foreign currency exchange. This fast paced seminar is an introduction to the area of Global Sourcing and International Contracting, designed to alert you to the many issues which are involved when one has to work in the international arena. Those who know how to deal with these issues have added a rich, exciting, and challenging aspect to their career as well as reduced operating costs for their organizations.
