Milan International Trade

Italian and European companies face a broad range of issues that may arise from moving products and services across borders. These issues may be practical, such as managing customs and border security issues or participating in trade enforcement proceedings, regulatory, such as compliance with the rapidly evolving EU sanctions regime or carbon reduction obligations, or strategic, such as redesigning a supply chain or making renewable investments in emerging markets.
