Impact of pandemic on cross-border trade subject of discussion

A discussion April 23 of the impact of COVID-19 on international trade and border management will offer expert opinion about the immediate repercussions and the long-term implications the pandemic will have on all areas of the cross-border economy.

Director Bill Anderson and special advisor Laurie Tannous of the Cross-Border Institute will host the event over livestream starting at 2:30 p.m. They will share current information and recent experiences involving the movement of goods, services, people, and funds in this new age of international business — and take questions from attendees.

The livestream is presented by Continuing Education as a prelude to the topics taught in the certificate program “International Trade and Border Management,” which will begin online instruction in September 2020.

Students will learn to operate a successful, globally-oriented business or to execute the functions of government agencies with trade responsibilities. Find more information on the program website.
