The ITC is pleased to sponsor an engaging discussion on mistakes companies have made in importing and exporting. The benefits and the positive results about international trade are popular topics, but what happens when it goes wrong? 

We will discuss real life stories of mistakes companies have made and how they responded. A local company wired $17.2M to a fake company, another shipped product to what they thought was an auto dealership in Russia (it was an apartment building), and what happened to a local company that missed the tariff deadline in China by 3 hours. Learn how companies dealt with missteps in fraud, commercial risks, credit, political, shipping and more.
