The opening of global markets and the demand for specialised goods and services offer tremendous opportunities for growth.
To take full advantage of these markets, however, companies must adhere to local laws and regulations regarding import, export, procurement, investment, customs, immigration, tax, and intellectual property. A breach of any of these laws, not to mention stringent and punitive laws enforcing economic or political sanctions as well as anti-corruption laws can have a crippling economic and reputational effect on a business.
