The speakers will assess the health of U.S. manufacturing and sourcing in Asia and Latin America and recent country-specific trends, going country by country through the latest developments.

Countries surveyed will include China, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, India, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Dominican Republic, among others.
We will also cover the implications and effects of U.S. and Chinese tariffs and provide information about various tax and structuring issues relating to international supply chains. This includes the impact and benefits of tax treaties, some thoughts on how to protect yourself when no tax treaty applies, the potential applicability of transfer pricing rules, the benefits and detriments of tax gross-ups and various documentation issues.
